Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi! freeflight here. I have been described as extremely critical; I catch flaws and little quirks easily. I will not sugarcoat anything, but I won't be rude about my suggestions either. I will betaread for the basics of spelling, grammar, and punctuation, as well as more complex aspects of fiction like character development, plot, and worldbuilding. I will give you my opinions on your writing. It is up to you to take my suggestions. Or not. I won't be offended. (Though things like grammar or spelling are basically indisputable. But if you would prefer to have poor sentence structure and misspellings, that's totally okay too. I kid, I kid.) Also, if I believe I truly cannot help your story, I will tell you so. This is not necessarily because your fic is shabby beyond belief; rather, it is because I do not find myself capable of editing its contents, whether good or bad.


My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
What I am good at: the basics of the English language (spelling, grammar, all that fun stuff), making sure characters are in character, spotting plotholes. I'm also good at understanding the facets of a character's personality. And I'm actually a nice person. Shocker. :P
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
What I am bad at: well... my entire beta-reading style is a bit problematic. I list out EVERYTHING I think could be improved, instead of showcasing one mistake and allowing you to find the others. I basically do all the editing/proofreading for you, giving you little room to grow as a self-editor. Also, I have poor story flow. I don't think I'm too bad of a betareader in general, unless you ask me to betaread specific topics/genres. NO SCI-FI (because I will most likely destroy your fic with my scientific ignorance) AND ABSOLUTELY NO HORROR (it's scary!).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm surprisingly good at analyzing and criticizing romance stories, especially ones that aim to showcase a more "realistic" relationship. Realism for the win, yo! Adventure, general, tragedy, humor, hurt/comfort, friendship... I'm personally fine with most anything.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
As I previously mentioned, it's best if I do not betaread any fics set in sci-fi worlds (same with crime, mystery, poetry, western). I'm not comfortable betareading any incest or yaoi/yuri. Also, if you write abuse fics but do not take them seriously... please do not ask me to betaread for you, as there absolutely no chance I would want to. No lemons/smut/inappropro sex stuff either. And no horror! Let me say that again for those of you who may have missed it: NO HORROR!
