Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am an artist that turned to writing as a result of the "bulk" of my stories. I currently do not take commissions for "manga" or 3D work, however I don't mind including how feasible it would be to turn your writing into a movie if requested - I enjoy the puzzle of trying to figure out how I would execute a scene or a particular effect.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Character Development, Situation/Plot (whichever your work seems prone to), Description (when I try), Condensing (Ironically)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I bond with most of my characters, therefore completing plot lines is bitter for me to do because I often want to kill everyone off. I tend to write without knowing the ending (Ebony Project, "Riche", Deep Blue Sector, Across the Airwaves, Bloodlines, ...etc...), rather than knowing the endings (Relativity, Sand Hoppers).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to read writers "babies", i.e. the stories they put their life into rather than commissions or more job-related works. I am not afraid to read anything racy, adult, or vulgar - in fact I probably prefer those over most because they seem more realistic to me.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I prefer to read fantasy and science-fiction novels that attempt to make good use of their genre itself. My definition of "good use of genre" is that the elements used aren't overused/forced/cliche, and as a result of their use within the story the plot can't be "ported" into another genre. On a more basic level, I will not argue/comment on the use, or lack of use, of literary devices. I believe that those are characteristic to the style of the writer.
