Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a fairly lenient beta-reader; I mostly correct spelling and grammar mistakes that are glaring, as well as pointing out places where it might facilitate reading much more easily. But I will not push any sort of writing style on you at all, but merely point out that action may be needed here, dialogue could break up writing there, etc... All to make it a better reading experience for your intended audience. I'll be ready to beta-read at nearly anytime, so drop a line!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am fairly good at helping a story flow, from pointing various different elements that can be used in a certain scene, to merely fixing up grammar and spelling errors.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am fairly weak in pushing perfect grammar; not only am I still learning all the different rules of English grammar, but the way an author wishes a story to be written is something I try not to tamper with too much, which may affect the quality of my comments.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
None, really; I will beta-read nearly anything, even romance, but the caveat to that goes in the next dialogue box.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would really prefer to stay away from sappy love stories. While romance is all well and good, and I firmly believe that the true drive of a story comes from the interactions of the characters, there's only so many 'I love you's one can take.
