Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Of course, I'm new to this little stint called beta reading (but not to the site: I've been on at least three years), and all that I ask from someone who wants me to read your story or chapter(s) is one, to be patient. I don't have a personal internet connection, plus I work AND attend college strikepart/strike bfull/b-time. Two, I'm gonna actually take this as seriously as I can, and probably suggest fairly sizable changes to the story (like a ctrl+a delete), because I actually care (and have a fairly active imagination).
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a fairly active imagination, a fairly decent grasp of cause-and-effect and logic (which some stories are lacking) as well as basic philosophy and basic physics (mainly from watching MythBusters, and my physics class I'm currently taking). I'm also kind of a grammar stickler (not quite Nazi, but I do respect the English language).
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Detail: I tend to include/like detail. I believe it adds to the plausibility of a story, and I believe that plausibility (even in fantasy or sci-fi), is one characteristic of good stories. Personally, it usually drags any action down that I write. I'm new at beta reading (and thus don't have any experience). I have a fairly active imagination, and I'm also kind of a grammar stickler (again, not quite Nazi anymore).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Mainly, I'd really want to beta read stories from continuities that I'm familiar with, like Sonic the Hedgehog, Law and Order Special Victims Unit, Burn Notice, and NCIS, that actually have some substance (a one-shot CAN have substance).
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Two words: FULL HOUSE; TWILIGHT; LEMONS; STORIES OF RANDOMNESS; OKAMI; STORIES WITH SO MANY IMPROPERLY INTRODUCED ORIGINAL CHARACTERS THAT IT'S HARD TO FOLLOW; THAT WAS WAAAAAY MORE THAN TWO WORDS. I really can't effectively beta read a story that's written for a continuity that I'm not familiar with.
