Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I believe that each person has a unique writing sytle, and as a budding writer(because I believe that no one is perfect)I think that one should always look for the opportunity to become better. Even though perfection is impossible (sorry, it's true), that doesn't mean that you should cease in your quest to obtain it. As a beta-reader, I would do all that I could to help you become better at what you love (or like, for the commitment phobics out there) so that you can perfect your craft. I would want someone to do the same for me, and like the saying goes. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Depth, to a piece of writing (and life in general) I have pretty down pack. I like to write for meaning, challenging myself to address an old topic and steer clear of the cliches that like to tag along for the ride. I'm not big into following the rules (writing shouldn't have any, besides your grammatical and spelling ones). Call me a rebel but I see writing as a free form, so unless you do something completely...insane, for lack of a better word, you're good with me.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling!!!! Thank God for spellchecker (and plain jane dictionaries that weigh a ton because I still use those when a computer is no where to be found).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like variety. I like spontaneity. Paint me a picture of a place I've never seen before, or give me a new perspective of a tired-out idea. Fantasy is what I enjoy the most. Poems mostly, just because they are shorter (usually) and easier to read when you only have a brief pause in time, but stories (with all their many, many chapters) are fine by me as well.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I really don't want to read about your same ole same ole high school drama. I get enough of that at school. I get it, the popular girl is your typical spoiled rotten brat. I don't need an entire chapter devoted to the way her hair looks. Hit me with something original, or witty, something, just not your typical vampire or high school or typical anything for that matter. Mainly, just make your writing yours, own it.
