Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta reader I like to explore and critique a work from all angles. I thoroughly check and correct spelling, grammar, syntax, and diction so that the flow of the written word is clear, concise, and moves in fluid movement from one action to the next. I critique ideas and flow of the plot and discuss different ideas to improve expressions and meaning in and behind the work. I will also look at characters and their interactions with one another to critique them and question if they are acting in character. I will also give comments, questions, suggestions and ideas to further the work in regards to writing style. I take the role of beta seriously and will concentrate all my efforts to working with both author and text to help produce the best work possible. Be assured I will take the time to thoroughly read and properly critique the text whether it takes hours or days to sift through the work. I also like to have a close relationship with the authors so that we can discuss events, questions, and ideas more in depth.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am a critical when it comes to grammar and spelling and am diligent in finding and correcting any mistakes. I read with an open mind and from multiple angles so I have continuous ideas and suggestions, as well as questions, for the author to consider. I check character interactions and plot development and critique them in a way to help the author better. I also have roughly five years of beta experience. =)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As a beta reader I will want to work with you to help you write your best. Part of the job is to give ideas on how things can be done differently, seen in alternate lights, etc. Sometimes I may flood you with a lot of ideas so that it may be overwhelming. I spend a lot of time to completely and thoroughly examine the work because I hold a high regard in quality in which I do the beta service. I warn that this may make multiple postings in a week difficult if the chapters are long.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Please note that the type of work, source of the work, character relationships, and character boundaries will need to be discussed before acceptance of a beta project. It is an unfortunate circumstance that there are a few project subjects I will not be willing to beta read.
I would most prefer works with the genres of: General, Romance, Drama, Action/Adventure, Angst, Tragedy, Family, Hurt/Comfort, and Friendship.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I do not have much experience with the sci-fi, spiritual, and western genres, so I will not be accepting offers for these types of works. I would like to offer my help to the best of my ability, and since I do not have experience with these, I will sadly leave them to someone much more qualified.
