|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello, everyone. I have been a FictionPress.com member since I was 14 years old. I haven't been very active on the site over the past few years, since I was doing secretarial work and going to college full-time. I was recently laid off due to budget cuts, and I also recently graduated with my B.A. in Literature with a Creative Writing track. My courses involved writing, editing, and workshopping thousands of pages of fiction, poetry, non-fiction, and scholarly work. My specialty was fiction. I also served as Fiction Editor, Editor in Chief, and Assistant Editor of my colleges' (I went to two) literary magazines over the years. I have more time on my hands now than I ever had in my life, and I've decided to use some of it to help some emerging writers polish their work. I can edit for everything from basic spelling and grammar, to overall structure and flow. Let me know if you have any specific requests.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My specialty is short fiction, usually around 20 pages, but I'm willing to take on other challenges.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I don't have much experience editing longer works of fiction, such as novels, but I have written them in the past, and I would be willing to try.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer reading edgy, character-driven stories, written by authors who aren't afraid to write dialogue uncensored and realistically. I like stories with light supernatural elements, which don't fit snugly into any one genre.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'd prefer not to read fiction that's cencored to keep the rating down, but I'm open to trying. Also, although I will read Sci-fi/Fantasy, it bothers me when a story is so far from our reality that I have trouble suspending my disbelief until the end. It's very difficult to write Sci-fi well. I know. Just browse all the shitty, teenaged sci-fi on my account from years ago.
