|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been a writer on this site for a long time and I am currently taking a Writer's Craft course at my highschool to further my own skills as both a writer and editor. I have absolutely zero expectations of people who wish to have me as a beta-reader. Yes, /zero/ expectations. Too many stories on this site are very difficult and annoying to read, and I want to help get rid of stories like that and help people better format their work, as well as helping their overall story.
I can and will edit both your spelling and grammar. I will read through your work and tell you if I think something is holding it back, if it seems just too crazy to be included in the work, and offer suggestions for you to improve. Under no circumstances do you need to take these suggestions and implement them.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I like to think that I am good at critiquing work in a fair manner. I'll tell you what I think is wrong with your writing, and explain why I think that. If I know the series you are writing for, I'll tell you if it's out of character and find out if that's intentional, or accidental. I'm usually pretty good at quickly getting a handle of what's "in character" and what's not, so I should be good that way. If requested, I can expand on things for you, make full suggestions and remove/add things in, but ONLY with your explicit permission. If you don't ask, I'll merely make the suggestion and leave it up to you.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not 100% grammatically correct, and so I will not always notice grammatical errors you make. I will, however, look to make sure that things look good and make sense.
I'm the type of person who hates things that are overly descriptive. Books that go on for pages explaining one thing are not enjoyable for me, so that said, I can't really expand on your description excessively. I can make suggestions and try, but I'm not the greatest at it.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer romance stories, or stories with a romance sub-plot. It's what I usually write, so it's what I feel strongest in. I also like to beta stories that are things I have knowledge of, so that I can really help you keep it in that specific series universe. I like to beta work that I could actually see myself read as well.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anything religious or heavy in historical information are not usually my cup of tea. If it's a twist on either of these things, I'll make an exception, but if it's not something I find interesting, I find it hard to fairly beta-read because I like to beta work that is something I would actually read.
