Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm more of an idea generator than a story writer. I have many ideas constantly floating around my head, but I can never seem to find the words to express them. When I betaread a story, I first look for obvious spelling and grammar errors. The second read through is for contradicting details, and for catching loose ends. I look at characters and events and decide who necessary they are to the story, and if they align with the plot. I can look through a story rather quickly for just basic error catching, but for deeper editing I may need a few days depending on work.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are cohesiveness in writing, and catching details that may contradict each other. I have a good eye for spelling, and I can spot awkward sentences and find a more easily read replacement.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weaknesses include comma placement, and some dialogue punctuation. I need a firm idea of where the story is going, otherwise any suggestions for character development and such may completely conflict with the plot. I am also fairly new to betareading, and have only edited a handful of stories.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer romance stories, anything fantasy.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would prefer not to read lemons. I'm okay with M rated stories, but I would like to look at more than just smut.
