Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
First of all, I do not believe in flaming. As in, I don't believe that it exists. I wish I could repeat that over and over again until every one of you little bastards drops out of the sky like dead fairies. If you accuse me of "flaming" your "work", I will think that you are taking out your frustration about your lack of talent onto me: the honest reader. 1. My grammar and form related rules are erratic. If it sounds poetic, I will most likely leave it alone. WARNING: Do not choose the wrong it's/its.
2. I judge books by their covers, and subsequently the titles of stories. And their geeky format or pretentious stylization. 3. If you are wonderful, I will love you. I am difficult to win over but it happens all the time.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I know what is worth reading but I enjoy being proven wrong. I have a good sense of flow and what is absolutely necessary in the telling of a story. I have an eye for the tiny details that make all the difference and I am a master at connecting things together. I recognize all these things when I see them.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I love dangling participles and double contractions. I am implicitly subjective.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Imagery with metaphysical conceits, human honesty, first person, strong latinate and saxon language, humor and melodrama.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Most things about vampires, teenagers, coming-of-age stories, poems about loneliness, poems about pets, poems about puppy love, corniness and melodrama.
