|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I like to take beta reading seriously, but not overly serious where you are scared to get a reply back from me. I feel that if you give your work to another writer, they should be able to help you as much as they can, and I want to help other writers make their piece of work as great as it can be. I have attended and worked in plenty of workshops to know what to focus on, and what to let slip by. I also understand that respect and dignity make up a lot of the workshopping progress, as I don't expect people to advance their writing if someone is being counter productive. I will never put down your writing, only make critiques that can make it better.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a pretty keen eye for character development. This seems to be a popular strength when it comes to betareading, and I think the reason for that is that it is one of the most important aspects of a story or piece of writing. I'm also very good at word choice. I read a lot of different things from true crime to historical fiction, so I will accept and read anything under the sun. For those of you who have trouble or need help with dialogue, I feel like I could help you with getting over that hill pretty easily as well.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am horrible at Iambic Pentameter. So, if you are a poet looking for help on that, you may want to look over someone else's profile. I also have a deadline problem from time to time.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would like to read something that will engage me. That is all.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Fantasy. I will read some fantasy storys and review them, but they have to catch my eye. Nothing against the genre, because I have read some fantasy books that are really cool. But, I have also come across some that are very predictable and corny.
