Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I lean towards the genres fantasy/drama/tragedy/humor/supernatural/horror/life.......The order is not important. All entries should be looked over at least once and revised, and I will accept requests for poems, short stories, multichapters, and essays will no discriminations towards wordcount. I am extremely detailed in my review of your works, and will look through everything throughly to ensure that you and the readers get the best experience possible with your writing.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am critical with technical errors(grammar, spelling) that may show up. I am incredibly verbose and can be useful with word choice (if necessary). I am very honest about what needs to be fixed or tweaked, and the choice to take my advice is certainly up to the individual.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I admit that I will occasionaly miss a few points that could be fixed, but that is why I will strive to read it over as many times as it takes to find everything that could be improved on. I am stubborn and sometimes harsh, but I will balance that with fair praise and point out the strong points in the story.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will accept novel-length pieces, however, I prefer poems and short stories( can be multichapter). Novels will not be given any less attention than my preferred stories, and will be given as much time and effort to improve the piece as any short piece would.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
If your story has not been overviewed by yourself, and is riddled with a myriad of simple mistakes that could have been easily fixed on your own, than it may put your piece in jeopardy of me not accepting it. If it is completely unreadable(i.e, text speak, SoMeThiNg LyKe ThIs, or somethinglikethisthatyoucouldonlyreadandgetaheadachewith), than I will not accept it. Period. I want to review work that has some thought and effort put into it. That's why people go to beta readers in the first place, because they want to improve their writing and get a fresh perspective. Thank you for your time.
