Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello, I enjoy several different communities (as explained on my profile), and thus, will beta-read for just about anything. I tend to be very thorough when betareading and will critique style (e.g., how much detail something is written in, if a plot makes sense, how characters are written, transitions) as well as mechanics (like spelling or grammar). The only expectations that I ask of anyone is that they're open to any suggestions I make. Those who I beta read do not necessarily have to follow my suggestions, but I ask that everyone please at least politely consider them.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
One of my strengths is that I am very thorough in looking through people's work, so if there is something that needs to be improved, more often than not, I will notice it. Another thing is I also excel in a wide variety of areas, working with a lot of different aspects of writing. I also know about a wide variety of topic, and I'm willing to research those I don't know (I will still take beta requests from people that are outside of a topic I know). Finally, I often leave very detailed explanations, so those looking for longer beta reading responses have come to the right place.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness tend to go with my strengths. For example, because I am very thorough, it usually takes me longer to beta someone's work than others who are not. People who use my services may have a longer response time compared to other betas. Also, although I excel in a wide variety of areas in writing, my weakest is spelling. If something is not obviously misspelled, I may not catch it. I am willing to research topics I don't know, but if it is something I don't know, it may take a little longer to get back to someone because I will be researching it. Finally, I leave longer and more detailed explanations, but those may not be for everyone.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm willing to betaread anything, but if there is a request I prefer not to do, I will immediately let the individual know.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I cannot think of any type of story I would absolutely not work with, but if such a case were to come up, I will let the individual sending the request know right away.
