|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a 22-year-old Creative Writing major with a decent amount of experience in giving feedback to writers. I firmly believe in the power of constructive criticism. I respect anyone who takes the time to write something.
I'm flexible in my beta-reading style. Depending on what you're looking for, I'll give you a general reaction, a detailed edit, suggestions, notes, etc.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spell-checking. Dialogue. Word choice. Constructive feedback. Patience. Grammar.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can be fast or I can be thorough. Very rarely can I be both.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer happy endings. Most definitely.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I really don't like sudden death endings, especially when there's no foreshadowing or purpose. Most of the time, for me, it seems like a cop-out attempt to get a reaction from the reader.
I'll read it, but I'm not really a big fan of using cuss words in writing unless the character/situation clearly calls for it. I just think it's unnecessary. There's usually a better way to say things.
