Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I really like reading any story that catches my interest, so I'd love to help someone make their story better. I can do anything from just looking at the grammar and flow to giving you ideas for your story, but if you told me to keep my trap shut, I wouldn't be offended. Just be prepared for a bit of sarcasm and I'm also really blunt but honest, so I probably won't sugarcoat my thoughts in order to spare your feelings. That being said, if you turn down one of my suggestions, I'm not going to pester you about it since this is your story and you'll be the one who knows where it is going, more than I do.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at grammar and vocabulary, so I can keep the sentence from getting too repetitive. I've also been told that I think of interesting plots for my own stories, so I could throw you ideas every so often if you asked me to.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not good at writing dialogues, so at best I would be able to tell you if something is not flowing well or maybe give you a tip on how to make it better. Same with fighting scenes. I can only really check those two things for continuity and grammar. Also, I tend to be pretty straightforward and blunt, so I will probably seem a little harsh at times.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I do prefer romance stories, especially ones with a supernatural element, but I will also enjoy other stories if you have an interesting plot. I'm not picky about what the pairing is, so I'll read yaoi, yuri or straight stories with any number of partners.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would not read a story if it just didn't seem to have any plot to it. I love fluff pieces, but only if the fluff is going to go somewhere at some point in a story. If it's a one shot, then I don't mind if it's just a bunch of fluff or not, but for longer stories I prefer there to be at least a little plot.
