Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Simply put, if I were to edit a work for someone, I would be very critical. I like being bluntly honest. But this doesn't mean that I completely rip apart a story. If someone has taken the effort to actually write a story there is bound to be something good about it, in my belief there is no "horrible story", unless ofcourse you suck at Romance, lol.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
- Recognizing effective and ineffective dialogues.
- Proper forshadowing in a story for easy transition into the plot.
- Critical eye for character development.
- Fixing plot.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Obviously I'm not perfect so my weaknesses include:
- a tendency to go crazy with commas - sometimes not noticing a letter missing from a word. (i.e. If I write a sentence like "Canada belongs to the Common Wealth" I might forget the h in wealth.) It doesn't happen very frequently though. Maybe like 4-5 times on a page at the most.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to edit Suspense, Horror, Romance. I'll edit almost anything, even Sci Fi EXCEPT if your story is going to have wayyyyyy too much science in it like stuff about atomic bonding and biology and whatnot, then you are better off with someone else cause I'm not a science major.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Well I pretty much just said it in the Preferred section.
