Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hey, I won't lie, I'm not the greatest writer, but I do enjoy seeing a job done. I can promise to give honest criticism and advice on how to improve aspects that I may feel need it, while respecting your writing style. Everyone's different, and the difference in styles is what makes reading and writing so enticing for me. I will also probably point out spelling or grammar to a scalpel's degree, so I apologise in advance for that. That aside, I'm a pretty relaxed writer, and I'm not out here trying to change the world. I just strive for enjoyable, emotional, approachable stories and fanfics, and having a bit of fun giving back to a welcoming community.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Like I said before, I focus on delivering enjoyment over anything else. Specifically scenes that don't include much dialogue, or scenes that are an action fiesta, I might just be your guy. My personal skills definitely come down to the flow of writing structure. When to have a complex sentence with many clauses and when to describe things in quick bursts seem simple on the outside, but can actually be quite nuanced at plot-heavy, turbulent points, which is something I've dedicated a lot of my time to improving.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Once more, no lies here. I struggle when it comes to poetic form, and don't always appreciate the little things. I also often struggle to see the multiple interpretations that some writers strive for. I also do much better at adapting longer works than short, but of late I've been attempting to improve that, too.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm an open book (no pun intended) when it comes to criticism, and I can read most works. I personally enjoy character dramas, however, and ones with real emotional weight. The reason I started writing, after all, was to make someone cry, a goal that I am fully aware is far away. Aside from that, comedy is always great to have a conversation about, and I'm surprisingly good at translating visual scenes into written ones, so if you're adapting an anime or movie, I might just be able to lend a hand.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
As mentioned above, I struggle with anything poetry-related. I'd also like to stick to the more enjoyable or though-provoking side of things. I like horror, but shock value for the sake of shock value isn't my cup of tea.
