Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Who am I as a beta reader? Well, I'm Kirsten, 31 years old and I live in The Netherlands. I write and read a lot of fanfics, so I think I can be a great help to the Dutch writers, those who are looking for translations or those who just need an opinion on their fics. When I beta read (is that even a word?) I check for grammar mistakes, the right usage of verbs and if the sentences flow easily. I will give tips, ideas and opinions, but I will not change an entire story because I believe that everyone can be proud of their work and everyone is allowed to post it. Me personally, I don't write fics mainly for the reviews. Even though they are (most of time) great to read and are a boost to your confidence, I find it liberating to post a story even though there are just 5 people reading and reviewing. I don't expect anything from anyone. You just send my the story and tell me what to do, because in the end isn't that what a real beta reader is all about?
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I like to think that my strenghts are writing romance, writing conversations and with my vivid imagination I usually can come up with new ideas or a continuance of the story after reading the last chapter. I also like to create new characters. For me, they are sometimes easier to write than the regular characters.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I've just spend the last 10 minutes thinking about my weaknesses. So far, I really can't think of something. One's weakness is another one's strength right? So together, we can make it work.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't necessairily prefer certain genres, even though I tend to write romance and general stories. However, I love to read angsty/horror stories too, so I guess I prefer pretty much everything.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I hardly write and read stories about Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, those kind of stories. Also, stories based on books isn't really my thing.
