|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello, writers of the world! My name is Hannah. I'm a seventeen year old high-school student living in the US. I have been a writer as long as I can remember; I started with published writing on fanfiction several years ago and have been recently building an extremely large database of original prose and poems.
Beta reading, or revising as I like to call it, is probably a bigger strength of mine than writing itself. I have a knack for finding the flaws in others writings when I'm unable to see them in my own.
My biggest cause for starting beta reading is because I want to be a safe haven for fledgling writers. In looking for a beta reader myself on this site, I've found a lot of them to be extremely rude and insensitive to people's situations or skill level. So, I want to be a beta reader that a writer can turn to for advice without fear of being ridiculed.
If asked to beta read a story, I will usually read it through first. My usual method of critique is first to correct all grammar mistakes. Then I will go back through and write comments adjacent to lines or sections that I believe need fixed. I usually don't spoon-feed writers exactly how they should correct something. In this way, you'll have to think a little bit and your writing will improve.
I hope to beta read for you soon!
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar is my biggest strength. I am a self-proclaimed "grammar nazi", so if you have any questions about anything grammar-related, I'm your girl.
I'm also very adept at vocabulary and using strong words to improve the emotions or senses behind a scene.
Finally, I'd say that I'm pretty good at helping to improve a piece of writing overall, as described above, as well as helping a writer reach his or her full potential.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not the best at extremely intense scenes. I tend to have a more analytical and less emotional mind, so scenes that are to be dominated by feelings are not the best for me.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Essays and analytical writing are my best area. Poetry is also a strong point.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Right now, I'm not beta-reading chapter stories, or anything over approximately 5,000 words. I'm not the best with keeping up with things on time for a long period of time, so I'd prefer to stick to one-shots and the like so that I don't disappoint anyone.
I'm also not going to beta-read anything that is extremely graphic, either on the gruesome or sexual side. I've allowed for M-rated stories in my preferences, but that is more for stories rated that for adult themes.
