Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I absolutely love reading and writing, but I especially love collaboration on those two things. I really enjoy working with people and helping to improve their work in any way I can. I am not a critical person; I don't believe in saying "this is bad," or groan if I find typos. I look for positive things that can be expanded upon and offer alternatives for something that I feel could be improved. I can be a betareader that is completely immersed in every aspect of the story (talking out possible plot, helping find typos, figuring out better ways to word things), or I can just be a proof-reader. I can tailor myself to what you are seeking.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a fairly extensive background in English and Writing (though I am not a professional writer/editor or English professor) and am therefore good at reading things with a critical eye and catching grammatical errors that might be lurking between the lines. However, I will be the first to admit that I am not infallible. I love writing description and coming up with unusual words-in place of standard, every day ones-in order to enhance a story. I'm also fairly good at mixing things up and keeping dialogue from just sounding like: "he said, she said, they asked, we replied."
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can sometimes have a problem balancing being nice versus expressing my opinion. Writing emotion is not as easy for me as I would like, though I can do it (it just takes me awhile).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I tend to love Hurt/Comfort stories, whump stories, and stories with an emphasis on friendships. Romantic stories that are not mushy, but instead just have a solid, sweet relationship between the two characters are really interesting. Heroic stories are always fun, but I'm not picky.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Heavily romantic stories do not particularly interest me, but I have some exceptions and have an open mind. I'm on the fence with tragedy or deathfics, so I suppose it depends on the overall plot with those two.
