Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta reader, I really want to help people improve their stories. I want to help serious writers see ways to improve their stories. I tend to focus on characterization and overall story improvement, but I will help with grammar if that tends to be an issue with you. I'm not going to write the story for you, just point out parts that could be worked on and suggest how to go about doing that. I will beta read as fast as I possibly can, and I will probably finish in a day or two unless the piece is ridiculously long. Also I want to beta read as much as anyone and I would be really happy to help you with your stories.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Characterization (particularly characters with issues), expressing emotion, finding plot holes and spelling/grammar mistakes in stories, a passion for writing and helping others write.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
In writing I sometimes forget to include a lot of action and tend to go off in long tangents about character's emotions. In beta-reading I will point out everything in the story that I find could be improved, which may offend some. To be honest I won't completely catch everything (no one's perfect,) and I may have different style preferences than some writers.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I really enjoy horror, supernatural, thriller, and mystery. I'd also enjoy beta-reading manga, romance, fantasy, and of course humor.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would really rather not do essay, spiritual, or biographies. However the only thing I will absolutely not beta-read would be poetry. I have no skills in that area.
