|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm pretty diverse in everything I read. I enjoy all types of stories and I usually do not criticize people for their ideas, but I will give advice if you permit me. I am very pedantic when it comes syntax, and diction (basic grammar). I am not here to ruin or change your stories completely, but I am here to give you a way to better yourself as a writer. I'm willing to give any advice you ask of me. Even I need help once in a while! I reread my story everyday to make sure I didn't miss something yesterday, or the day before that.
Please, advice is meant to be constructive criticism; it is not a mean to hurt you, or your feelings. Also, advice is optional, not a word of law; you don't have to take it if you don't like it. As human beings, we are rather opinionated.
When you request me, please tell me what you want me to do as I read your story. If not, then I'm just going through it for grammar. Don't be scared by what you've read previously. I am truly a nice person, and I am more than willing to help you out in any area you need help in.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I pretty good with syntax (sentence structure), diction (word choice), writing techniques, plot development and organization. I am also very good in period dialogue (meaning, if you have a period [for example: Jane Austen's time period] story, and you want me to fix the language so it doesn't sound too modern, I certainly can help you with that).
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Poetry, especially very good poetry.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer reading stories from period books and films, such as: Pride and Prejudice, or the Titanic; anything along those lines. I have read a lot of the classic books, so I should have a good background on that. If you want me to read a movie-category story, tell me what movie is it from first, because I don't want to go in blindly without having watched the movie (especially if you want help with the plot). I also prefer historical stories, too. However, if you have anything from an anime or a manga, bring it on!
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Sure, there are things I wouldn't read if I was just leisurely browsing through. But, if you request me to read one of your stories, there is usually nothing I wouldn't prefer at a request.
