Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My style mostly involves grammar nitpicking and suggestions of how to improve certain scenes or just the story overall. If you wish me to beta for you, I hope you take your writing seriously, because while I completely understand that some people write only for the fun of it, there are others out there who genuinely want to improve and write some amazing works, and those are the ones I’m more suited to working with. I take my beta reading duties seriously, so I would rather have someone with a similar approach to their work.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Anything I have a history of doing myself, since it’s made me more aware of other people doing it. This includes changing tenses suddenly, a clunky flow, and rushing scenes. I also am very nit picky with grammar, and while I’m not sure if my usage is entirely correct, no one else seems to have a problem with it, so I take that as a good sign.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
This mat sound completely absurd, but I struggle with writing good things about someone’s work. This doesn’t mean I don’t like it, I just sometimes find it hard to articulate what exactly I like about something. But that doesn’t mean I won’t try! If I like a piece of writing, I will try to explain absolutely everything I like about it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love AU and Fix-It fics, but overall, I’m not completely fussed over the type of work, except for those listed below.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
It’s not generally allowed on this site, but I refuse to betaread work that is primarily smut or lemon. That is not something I write, and I don’t think I can really give sufficient advice on such a work. Small scenes within a larger piece are fine, I would generally just not leave and words on those.
