Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I beta-read to improve people's writing, as well as my own, so I won't be giving harsh, crushing feedback. I understand that everyone has their own writing styles, so I'll respect that. In beta-reading, I'll do a general spelling/grammar check, as well as looking at plot and characterisation to give your story that 'edge' =D
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm generally quite good at spotting technical mistakes, and I'm good at characterisation, and making sure stories don't get cliched.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to pick at silly details, and I often let the plot run away with itself, and totally miss out important points and stuff.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd prefer fiction to poetry (I'm not much of a poet) but generally any genre would suit me, especially angst and action.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Childish humour gets at me, and I'm not a huge manga fan. I'm not a big poet either, so I'm not sure I'd be the best person to judge other people's poems, but if you want me to look at any of these genres, I will.
