Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I really love helping other writers get positive reviews and gain confidence as a writer. We're all family here, cliche as it sounds, and I like supporting fellow writers. As far as style goes, I'll generally read the piece multiple times and each time focus on a different thing; grammar, spelling, plot and characters, etc. Anyone wanting my help with beating a piece should know that I get very nervous about offending the author when I'm betaing another person's writing, so if you ever have an issue with something feel free to bring it up and I will be more than happy to explain myself. Also, being a student I may be unavailable for a week or two at a time, but I WILL get through anything anyone sends me. It may simply take some time.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I’m great with working with plots and character development. If you have worries about creating a cohesive plotline or keeping characterization consistent/developing characters over time, I can absolutely help. I work very hard to help writers achieve a balance between detail and the movement of the story, so that readers don’t feel bogged down in minutia while they still have enough detail to get a good mental image of the character/setting/scene. On a mechanics level I’m good at catching grammar mistakes and small typos, as well as helping with sentence structure so that the story flows smoothly.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am mildly dyslexic, so I sometimes miss incorrect spellings, hence why I read each piece multiple times. I'm also not always great with dialogue, though that is a skill I hope to refine by becoming a beta.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like dramatic stories and serious plotlines, but I also really love fluff stories. I'm totally cool with heterosexual or nonhet pairings (such as homosexuality, polyamory, etc), and I have nothing against non-Mary Sue OC's. I like oneshots and multi-chapter stories, so you can send me basically whatever. And I positively ADORE Shakespeare and Les Miserables stories, so I will gladly beta those!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not great with super, super far out there ships or excessively crazy crack fiction. I love comedy, but excessive crack crosses a line for me where it just stops being funny. And I absolutely do NOT do shipping anyone with a minor.
