β : Sporktastic is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a new beta reader, but I have a long history of peer editing, critique groups, collaborations, etc. As you may have guessed from my pen name, I love sporking - i.e. picking apart stories as a form of recreation.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Practice. At this point I've been writing, editing, and sporking for a pretty long time.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'll advise you murder all your darlings. What this means is, I can be very critical and exacting. I'm polite, but I don't pull my punches.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Fantasy, sci-fi, mystery, horror, action, historical. Genre with a side of literary.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Romance, unless you want a tragic one. Nothing with SAW levels of gore. Nothing that romanticizes/fetishizes serial killers or antisocial personality disorder - a.k.a. psychopathy/sociopathy. Stories in which a jerkass protagonist is considered charming/heroic by supporting characters.
