|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well. I beta read with a very positive eye, but don't get me wrong, I don't like to let things slip. I'm a proven speller and I like to think accomplished writer. I thrive on plot and details, and without those two I'll be suggesting alot of tune ups for your stories. Personally, I enjoy stories that have action and romance all balled into one, without pages and pages of pure fluff involved. Also, details mean everything to me. I want to know what the characters think, I wanna hear what they hear, feel what they feel, everything around then and everything about them, I want to know.
I promise I wont be too harsh or judgmental in any way, as I believe that while it can takes years to turn a good story into a great story, each and every story has a start, and can be improved upon with effort.
P.S. Send me your femmeslash and your fantasy fiction. I can read those all day and all night. Superheroes, Vampires, Secret Brotherhoods? I'm your girl.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excel at noticing grammatical errors, especially sentences that are too long or too short, or that don't flow correctly. Personally as a writer I would take a descriptive run on sentence over a short and sweet "See Spot Run" any day. Also, I'm a description fanatic, I love descriptive stories that really allow me into the readers world, versus pure dialogue, especially dialogue that seems cliche or boring. Speaking of cliche, I hate cliches, and although some seem necessary, like how it's cliche for writers to hate cliche, I try and always help the writer tweak it so the outcome isn't so obvious.
Plot reigns supreme in my world, for without plot, we would have no stories at all.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm a true procrastinator, and sometimes that might just try your patience.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Send me your femmeslash and your fantasy fiction. I can read those all day and all night. Superheroes, Vampires, Secret Brotherhoods? I'm your girl. I enjoy stories about students in college or young adults finding their way in life. Anything involving an insane asylum or being reminiscent of "Girl, Interrupted" or "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" I will cherish forever. I'm not judgmental in any way, and I LOVE stories with homosexual characters, me being a lesbian myself.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Cliches. High school love affairs, unless there's a twist like the main characters are gay or there's a threesome with the art teacher. Angsty poems with forced rhyme structure. First time writers trying their hand at erotica who fail to include description or character emotion.
#1 No no, stories with no plot.
