Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My Fanfic Beta-editing is an extension of my private Editorial Service, the Red Pen. As a beta-reader, my goal is to help writers produce great fan-fictions that live up to their full potential, and to help the authors improve their own writing skills, and find their personal style. Many amateur authors start out with fan-fiction, and I consider working with these authors as a beta editor to be a great privilege. The process of working with me/the Red Pen as a beta goes as follows: 1. You send me the plot outline, synopsis, and basic story info to review. 2. If one does not already exist, a plot skeleton is constructed. 3. We begin with chapters. You send me what you've written, and I send it back with notes. The document is sent back and forth with revisions and notes until you are happy with it. We continue in this manner, chapter-by-chapter until the story is complete.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Working with me/the Red Pen as a beta, you will gain the following benefits: 1. a human spell/grammar checker that can catch things a machine won't, such as misused words and mangled phrases. 2. Improved storytelling; this beta service will help your story attain a natural flow and pacing, with a consistent voice, lack of plot-holes, and story focus. 3. Characterization; keeping canon characters in character, and designing OCs who fit with the world and capture the interest and investment of your readers is a complex task that it never hurts to have unbiased help with.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not the fastest service out there. It can take a couple days to a couple weeks for documents to be sent back with annotation, however I will always attempt to let you know when the wait will be longer than normal. I am also an editor first and a reader second. If you only want someone to check your spelling and compliment your imagination, you are in the wrong place. I consider my role to be an editor and an educator, and if you are not interested in improving your work or yourself, neither am I.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Genres I consider myself better at include Western, Action, Adventure, Drama, Tragedy, Angst, Hurt/comfort, Horror, Mystery, and Romance. I am also fine with beta-reading for smutty fiction.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Parody/comedy stories are ones I don't have much practice on, but am willing to work at.
