|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I will correct grammar and give suggestions on anything ranging from plot development to flow to characterization. I am usually pretty opinionated, but you are by no means inclined to agree to any of my opinions. They exist only as suggestions and sometimes can be used as a wall to bounce off your ideas. Be patient with me. I have a life, and I am beta reading because it is fun. If it ever stops being fun I will enable hiatus. I will, however, take your story seriously, and whatever I will say will be thoroughly thought through.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm pretty good with recognizing whether or not a story is believable, also stuff like descriptions and flow. Oftentimes, I will tell you "Hey, this part sounds a little fishy. I mean would she really go out with this guy after he killed her parents even though she's drunk and he bought her a nice necklace? I mean, I know it's necessary to the plot..." Stuff like that. (That was a really bad example.)
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Dialogue. I stress way too much over how to phrase something. "Who are you going with tonight?" "Are you going out with anyone tonight?" "Is Brian taking you out tonight?" "You wanna go with me to a movie?" "Are you even going out tonight?" "Do you even have a life?"
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Family stories. I adore a well-written father/daughter, mother/daughter, father/son relationship. Oneshots are my forte. And angst is also extremely welcome.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No smut/lemons/x-rated scenes (you know what I mean) in a oneshot, although I will still critique it if it is a longer story. I'll probably just skip over it. No incest or impreg. Slash is acceptable, but only in a oneshot.
