Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Reading is very important to me, as much of literature is, so betareading is something I enjoy to do. It may take me some time to provide feedback, depending on my workload, but I can assure that I put my best effort into doing the job thoroughly. I expect that you proofread your own work before having anyone read it, even a beta-reader. It'll improve your own writing, and your own understanding of the way you write. Furthermore, I can be a tough critic; I value giving good feedback for both strengths and flaws. I don't sugarcoat, but I do give constructive criticism and praise when it is warranted.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I believe that my strengths are in description. I enjoy finding details in writing, and I most definitely enjoy writing them. I am especially keen on differentiating between telling and showing, an important distinction in creative writing. I have experience in editing and have written for published works. In addition, I can often catch grammatical mistakes easily when I read.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I don't know all of the rules of English. I'm still learning all the different styles and ways to write, and I believe that betareading may help me. It's a process that benefits both parties. Like many others, I am trying to hone in on my craft and sometimes overlook some conventions of the language. As you may probably be able to tell from my lengthy beta-reader profile, I struggle with keeping things short and concise.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta for stories based on books and tv shows, since I am more familiar with those than anything else. It's easier to beta-read when I know of the world the story is set in and of its characters, though I can still provide feedback for stories that I'm not so close with. I'll read much more that what's under my categories in beta preferences, so if your story doesn't fit those, I'm more than happy to try anyway.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not that picky about which stories I do and don't want to beta for. I am open to just about anything!
