β : Aoi-shi is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a 20-year-old university student; an English Literature major with an emphasis on technical writing. I'm not only a beta-reader, but a proficient editor of all texts-- fiction, non-fiction, essays, poetry and otherwise.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I edit in different layers, starting with the overall rhetoric of the piece-- Does it make sense? Does the reader connect to it? Does it mislead or confuse the reader? Does it offend the reader? Does it have a natural flow?
I then go deeper, editing sentence by sentence. Things I look out most for? Winding, run-on sentences. Boring, passive voice.
Finally, I'll start hashing through the grammar of your work. Everything from spelling, punctuation, word choice to sentence structure.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not going to tell you that your writing is great when it isn't. I understand that everyone is at a different level in their writing ability, but it's not my job to stroke your ego. It's my job to help you clean up and polish your writing, and maybe even help you become a better writer in the process.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm a sucker for romance. And to be perfectly honest, I'm definitely not opposed to mature content. As... long as it's between a boy and another boy. ^^''
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm sorry, but I just... prefer not to read het-romances.
