Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love to read, and if I can help someone with their writing I'm happy to do it. I can lend a helpful and listening ear when you need one, or need to bounce ideas/fics off of someone, you name it! As far as expectations, I suppose a clear enough storyline that I don't get lost, but other than that I'm fine with whatever I'm given. For a style, hm..I suppose articulated/poetic, more like a page from a good book or some kind of script. Oh, and I tend to work the most with/on how each person reacts to what's doing on in the story and why, along with physical descriptions. My close friends like to call me the 'Living Dicitionary', with my use of many complex, often archaic words.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths? Well...I'm pretty good when it comes to writing physical descriptions, character dialogue, interactions and emotions, and especially great at writing poems and rhyming words, since I have an ever-expanding and diverse vocabulary. I can help with definitions, word choice, spelling and how it comes across to the audience.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Okay I'm going to name my main weaknesses in writing, pretty much physical altercations, fight scenes, if it involves combat in any way, I have a hard time describing and writing it. I sometimes over complicate stories if I get carried away, but most of the time I catch myself before that happens. More often than not I add useless parts to stories, making them much longer than before. Length is a definite problem for me, but it helps if I have a structure or set number of chapters you as the write have in mind.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Well, I guess I prefer multi-chapter stories, namely those that focus on one character. As far as the point of view, third person is what I work best with. I prefer stories in English, though Spanish is for the most part okay for me.( Even then, I have friends who can help me with translations if and when I need it.) Other than that, I'm fine with anything so long as it somewhat makes sense.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Okay stories I would not beta read? Nothing all over the place and makes no sense (crack-fics), ones with tons of Oc's: I'm referring to ones where the entire story is JUST about Oc's and nothing else. Aside from that, I'm willing to read whatever.
