Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I like to read stories that flow. If you are trying to acquire my services, I wouldn't mind reading something that has at least some ability to flow. I am going to be completely, sometimes brutally, honest about someone's work, so be willing to recieve a comment you might not necessarily like. I believe that each work is a fingerprint of the author and I will respect to the best of my ability. But I will say that if you blatenly ignore my suggestions and don't offer me any reasons why you so strongly refuse, I am open up for debate mind you, then I might not like working with you. Basically, if you disagree, just tell me why for my own benefit. I like to think outside of the box so some of my responses may be a little unconventional, so just be ready for it.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I will be as strong as I possibly can with each work and do what I can to make you love your work that much better. I look for sentence structure, but i'm bigger on content itself. I'll try to make corrections in a different color so you can know what they are. I won't change anything, that's your job to decide if you even choose to take my advice. I like open critiques and brutally honest interpertations. I don't shy away from telling what I think. I tell it like it is and it's obvious in my own work, but I do poetry a whole lot more than fiction, but I'm trying something new.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not a great speller, I'm not going to lie. I worship spellcheck as one of the greatest inventions ever hailed by man. I pray that you do the same. Um.. I'm not that great with deferring from simple, complex, sentences etc... I believe that sometimes, a lot of really short sentences will make the point better than a few very long ones.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like poetry and fiction that deals with really strong issues. But don't be afraid to come to me with something that is a little out of the box. In other words, make me wish that i had wrote it first! Just kidding!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I do not like to read mature rated stories (But I will anyway if you need me to)NOTHING UBER SEXUAL!!! and I really would not like to delve into political types or historicals (But again, I will anyway). Believe me, I'm in debate and I can tell you just how it really is, don't make me make you cry. I'll tell you what I think to the best of my ability.
