Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a voracious reader and a dedicated writer with a solid grasp of the English language, and a sound idea of what makes a novel flow properly and tick for the reader. I've done beta work in the past, and I'm more than happy to help anyone who asks for it. I work three ways: You can email me your story (OpenOffice or PDF) and I will make changes for you and email it back with a description of what I've done and why - or you can send me your work via DocX (this is my preferred method). Otherwise I can read published work and PM you with a description of what I would change (I would prefer not to work this way). I will work with you the whole way and give you my honest opinion. I strive to give constructive criticism, and I won't hold anything back. I don't give my services lightly, and if I agree to beta-read for you I expect you to follow through until we're finished, or let me know that you're no longer interested so I'm not left waiting forever. I reserve the right to refuse my services, and to cancel if you aren't being civil or working according to my terms. I look forward to working with you!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can proofread very well, and I can also help with descriptions and wordflow - making your prose easy and enjoyable to read. (I can help you tell when descriptions are too detailed, or not detailed enough, when a word doesn't fit or would be better used elsewhere.) I can also give you tips about plot holes and character development/interaction.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can't edit poetry, and I won't be the best at fanfics - especially about books, movies, or TV shows I've never read or watched.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Any sort of novel: fantasy, scifi, mystery, YA, romance, western, steampunk, historical, etc. etc. Occasionally fanfiction (at my discretion).
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No poetry, no nonfiction, and nothing with graphic sexual content. (I'm okay with some, but please nothing detailed or over-the-top.)
