Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm new to this so you may have to bare with me. As such, I'm only just beginning to develop a beta-reading style but i do know what I will and won't read. My style will focus probably more on young adult fiction and poetry, more in the romance and free-verse genres than anything, but I am willing to read outside these.

As a beta-reader I will focus on flow of story/stanzas, grammar, spelling and use of language. I am working towards a focus on characterisation as well, so as to be a little more narrative friendly. If something about the story doesn't feel right I will try my best to help you with it.

I expect a basic level of spelling from anyone wishing to use my services, but apart from that I'm pretty open regarding the story's/poem's style and themes.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I write mostly free-verse poetry now after writing short-stories for a few years.

I am good at synthesising/developing ideas for narratives/narrative-style poetry.

I will pick up on general grammatical/spelling errors.

I am willing to help with characterisation within stories, although it is not my strongpoint as I am a little out of practice with serials.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am out of practice with dialogue within serials as a result of my growing preference to write free-verse poetry.

Some ideas that I express within my own writing sometimes come across as vague and under-developed but I am in the proccess of correcting this.... in some of my stuff i want the ideas to come across vaguely to reflect parts of the piece itself.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to read romantic, young adult fiction, or just poetry in general. In narratives, I will read both serials and short-stories, and I am open to most themes within both narrative styles.

With poetry, I do like free-verse A LOT, but I will beta-read any type of poetry.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not read anything loosely based on Twilight, and I don't do gore or horror... to do so would not be a good idea, as I may then become a little fierce.
