Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love reading other people's stories. It's one of my hobbies. I've never used a beta reader for as long as I've been on this site however I'd love to offer my services to whoever requires them. I'm very kind and will offer constructive criticism when necessary. I promise to keep in mind that other people have different writing styles than me and will not change major parts of your story, only correct spelling and grammar mistakes. I will also offer suggestions on the general flow of the story and character development. I will be 100% honest in my critiques. I will not lie to you and if your story needs improvement, I will tell you. You don't have to take my suggestions but do not waste my time if you are not able to handle criticism of your stories.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spotting mistakes that most people would miss, spelling, grammar, character development, plot development, word choice, and thorough feedback.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
getting emotionally attached to stories/characters, not being able to handle angst or tragedy, sometimes incorrect usage of punctuation, impatience (with reading and writing), lots and lots of cursing, and projecting my feelings onto authors.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love romance and fluff. And smut. And yaoi. I'm basically the typical fangirl lol but of course I'll read almost anything, even things that make me sad. I love long stories but please do not ask me to review 50 chapters of an endless saga that will be part of your 8-part series. I don't have the patience or mental fortitude to do it. I prefer multi-chapters to oneshots and if it is only one chapter I'd like it to be at least 1,000. I know too many anime, tv show, movie and book series to list all my favorites here but like I said I'll read anything. Just know if I'm not familiar with the characters I cannot give thorough feedback, especially if you're trying to keep them in character and I can't correct you on missing details.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I REFUSE, absolutely REFUSE to read the following subject material: incest, rape, child molestation/assault, suicide/depression, ED (eating disorder including anorexia, bulimia, etc. EXCEPTIONS: IF you are an excellent writer and can handle these subjects with care and do not use them just for the hell of it, to add drama to your stories, torture your characters or just because it's taboo and can actually be sensitive and realize that these are real issues that real people struggle with and fiction is not license to write false information because you are too lazy to do research, then I will willingly read your story and give you a high level of critique but don't expect praise.
