Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a grad student who has a taken a number of writing and reading classes. My beta-reading style is to carefully analyze each sentence to check for proper grammar and easy to understand thoughts. I tend to change things around using the change tracker function in word, and leave comments as to why I changed something. The changes can then be either accepted or denied when the author gets it back with just a click of a button. I find this is a great way to give my input, without actually changing the meaning the author meant due to me misunderstanding.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am good at sentence structure and grammar. I am also good at writing/editing a paragraph or sentence to make the thoughts more understandable for the reader. For example, passive voice vs. active voice; using positive wording vs. negative; and etc. I am also good at making sure the right form of a word is used (then vs than). If the author has one particular area they know they struggle at, I am happy to focus on that area.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not the best speller there ever was, but then, that is the purpose of spell check and a dictionary.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anything is fine, but I really love stories that focus on the emotions of the characters.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anything is fine.
