Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I tend to write much more than I read, which is, generally, a bad thing to do. I don't find that I can really know how to write out my ideas and thoughts as artistically as published authors out there. It is an acquired skill, I must say, to know how to bring across one's story in a thousand words, just to form a single picture. I tend to be more on the editing side, and usually make large corrections is need be. I have no set expectations as a beta-reader: only that the person writing has a basic grasp in English and is attempting with all of his or her might to make the story the best ever that he or she has ever written.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am particular about spelling - I lean onto the side of British English, though my word editor does not favour it at all, with Microsoft being from the US. I also tend to correct mistakes in phrasings as well as repetition in vocabulary, which I personally detest, even in my own work. Punctuation is varied.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to over-describe to the point of making things redundant. I cannot portray active subjects properly and tend to make fighting scenes very bland. The latter I am working on, as well as the former but on a lesser basis.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anything that I have had experience in playing or watching - quite a lot of fandoms. Just inquire.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Extremely over-the-top gruesome stories. I do not want to sacrifice sleep time over nightmares (which I can portray very well, perhaps not because of your writing but rather a vivid imagination). I need to study. Sorry. Throw at me anything minus graphic sex and the above.
