|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am hobbyist writer who is very nitpicky and biased. These biases gravitate me towards stories that focus on character dynamics and less so on plot. I am ambivalent towards plot and will rarely make comment on it unless I find any major problem or an interesting detail in regards to the execution of that plot. Characters, on the other hand, I will frequently try to pick apart. If you enlist me as a betareader, I will be very hands-off. I am willing to give advice. I am willing to be a sounding board to bounce ideas off of. I am willing to give word choice suggestions for dialogue and prose. I am *not* willing to write your story for you.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have experience and believe I am skilled at the following aspects of writing: Characters and character dynamics - personalities interacting with each other; Writing from multiple characters' perspectives and showing the characters' personalities within the prose itself; Pacing dialogue scenes in a way that allows the characters to remain in motion while speaking; Writing action scenes that do not get bogged down by overly detailed descriptions of the choreography; Depicting emotions such as grief, loneliness, apathy, annoyance, and spite; And depicting various kinds of relationships, romantic or otherwise - even those with more than two people involved.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Do not expect an objective stance from me if I beta for you. The stories I read and write inform my taste and any bias I take from them will be applied to your own story as well. I personally do not consider this a weakness but I do understand that this is an undesirable trait for a betareader. Also note that when I do not have many things to say about your story, I will outright state that I do not have much to say.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Generally, I prefer stories that focus more on character interactions than the advancement of plot. I am still willing to beta for plot-involved stories but do keep in mind that characters are what I read stories for.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'll decide on a case-by-case basis. Some stories will hold my interest, some will not. In either case, I will tell the author my stance.
