Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a MASSIVE bookworm, and so in truth reading is my life. I can't help but read, so I bring a lot of passion into beta-reading. If you want someone who is going to look at it from a true reader's point of view, look no further. When it comes to making notes on other people's work I tend to first read the piece as a whole to get the feel for it, then I will go over it with a fine-toothed comb. I'm a fast reader, so generally it doesn't take me very long. I try and be as friendly as possible, and be constructive in my criticism, not just say things like - "This character feels completely out of place" but rather say, "An idea would be for you to make this character interact with the scene a little more". If this sort of style appeals to you, then shoot me a message!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I tend to enjoy getting into the minds of the characters more in my own writing, and especially like more descriptive work. I'm relatively good with dialogue, and can offer help when it comes to 'setting the tone' of the conversations and whatnot.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As a writer I struggle with angst - it's just one area that I can never seem to get right. Massive displays of emotion and things like crowd scenes tend to run away from me a little as well.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Preferably fiction that is T-Rated and up, although I'm most likely to look at M-Rated stories. Yaoi, yuri, hetero - I'll do all of these. Romance is always a plus, but I also would prefer something humorous or possibly mysterious, or mildly dramatic.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not in particular. I'm against Mary-Sue and obvious self-inserts, but I'll read practically anything if someone wants my opinion on it. Nothing too angsty though - when I say I like a little drama, that does not mean sob stories.
