| A. L. Carrington 's Beta Reader Profile
Author has written 9 stories | Scandal.
β : A. L. Carrington is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I look for good balance in a storyline. I look for strong character development, and basic grammar and spelling in all finished products. I am in full support of keeping the plot simple, but it's good to keep the audience guessing. A curious reader, is an invested and faithful reader. The plot lines also need to be relate-able; people need to be able to connect to the characters in some way. This is essential in good writing, and i look for it in every story i read.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can assess the depth of one's writing skills quickly, and give constructive criticism for fundamental development. I don't approve of unnecessary violence, offensive racial or gender based humor at all, and refuse to read that type of content. However, i am open to reading stories designed to challenge one's thinking, and can determine if the content requires such controversial scenes.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I understand no one is perfect. But my weakness as a betareader is expecting to read work from those who are at least trying to grow as a writer, and therefore that person is willing to accept criticism without taking offense to it.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I do enjoy romance and drama as my primary preference. I also like comedies and detective based writing as well.U am open to all ratings, including M rated stories.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not a science fiction or supernatural type of reader. So i'd rather not review those types of stories.
