Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Typically speaking, I will look for some mistakes that you yourself may have missed. A small word here, a comma there. Just whatever I can to tiddy things up a little and make the structure of a sentence flow better. I've learned from experience that it can be very easy to miss something yourself, only to have it picked up by someone else on the outside. I'm fond of telling people that, 'two sets of eyes are better than one.' but not in a demeaning way obviously. We all learn as we progress and the only way to get better is to learn from our mistakes.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I pour a lot of emotion into my work. In a sense, I feel like I am putting a piece of my soul inside of my work. This 'connection' helps to bring me closer to my work and bring the best to the forefront. As such, I would consider some of my strengths to along the lines of being very emotive and descriptive. If there some other way to explain something, or some other way to describe a character, I'll aim for it. Variety can really add a lot to a story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Just like you, I am only human so I am bound to make mistakes as well despite my desire to not do so. The likeliest being grammatical errors. While I'm proficient in what I do, there are still times where I get confused whether a comma is needed or a semi-colon is needed. As such, I am bound to miss some grammar here and there, hopefully not much though.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Stories that I would prefer to read over would be Romance, Fantasy and Adventure stories, and sometimes Hurt/Comfort stories and some Action stories.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories I don't like reading over as much would be mostly Horror and certain others. It's best to ask me first if your story is something I like, if I like it then I'll be happy to beta-read it for you. When sexual stories are involved I'll do anything, although very rarely will I do M x M.
