Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I enjoy aiding in creative process, that being said I don't have a lot of experience helping others. I like to ask a lot of questions to clarify a point and to create plot ideas. I like a bit of give and take between me and the author. I would like a timeline for when you want a chapter done, it can general or specific. I re-read extensively and will keep notes of my ideas and things I believe should be changed. I will changes words if I know one that fits better.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good with spelling and competent with grammar. I like playing with words so my vocabulary is quite developed. I find great enjoyment playing with plots.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My dialogue can be a bit stilted at times, it won't always be perfect but I am improving. I admit that if I get wrapped up in a story I might miss something.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love fantasy, all forms of poetry, horror, adventure, and supernatural. I like dark stories, something with a jagged feel. I don't care if it has a sad or happy ending, I'm fine with both. A story for a mature mindset is preferred. If it's a children's story or a parody I would like prior notice, that way I won't treat it as a more serious story. I will read any rating. I don't care if a story has sex. Poetry can rhyme or not at your discretion but I want to know the vision you're trying to convey, that way I can makes sure I stay within those bounds.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't like to help with works involving current religious views. I tend to avoid teenage angst and romance. There is nothing in this word that will get me to read futuristic sci-fi and as much as I like to read crime I don't have the patience to help create it. If your story if a typical vampire romance, don't bother. I will no read it I get enough of it off the tv.
