Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I like to read for plot first. I think that is the most essential part of a story. After I spot all weak points in the plot I will go back and edit for grammar and spelling. A writer will need to tell me what they specifically want me to focus on-whether it be plot lines or grammar. I am honest and will tell you what I believe will make your story better. For the categories that I offer my beta-reader services in I can help an author spot details that go against the plot. And if I don't know something I'll look it up.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am an avid reader so I'm good at pointing out which details are irrelevant in a story and when it is appropriate to add more details. I also have a good eye for a strong plot line. I see a lot of stories that have a good strong idea for a plot but there is not enough to add to the story. I can help writers with strengthening the overall plot of their stories by knowing when to add a little more "meat" to the plot skeleton.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
While working on plot lines I may not focus as much on grammar. If requested I can look at this area more specifically.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am a sucker for any romance or humor story. In romances I often prefer traditional pairings.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not into AU or crossover stories. I am sort of a purist and I like it when authors try to stick with the original characters and plots. However I do love additional characters if they are well written and I can help authors with that.
