Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
The job of a beta-reader does not differ much from that of a good reader. My job is simply to be hyped when seeing that the story I am currently showing interest in is updated, read it from A to Z (a must), offer helpful (hopefully) comments and/or advice, criticize as needed, move along the plot, point out mistakes, recommend some things that I (aka the viewer) want to see and last but (definitely) not least, /

I will not be forceful and always be open to rejection of such or such advice (after all, the story is yours not mine!).br /

As with any writer, I am always happy to see improvement in texts, characters and /

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
While my level of English may not be the best, it surely could have some uses. I am a diverse writer (having dabbled in everything from poetry to tragic fiction to philosophical musings) and this should help with diverging views. I keep in mind that writing is often (if not always) just good planning. I will be extremely honest and blunt with what I see in your text and try to change as little as possible while trying to improve it as much as possible.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
The are surely better beta-readers out there and sometimes I can be a little too forceful. If you yourself are headstrong, then we will be butting heads often, though that is not necessarily a bad thing. I am a fairly new writer and my general culture is not the most extensive (being young doesn't help). Also... I am a guy... which means doing two things at the same time is not my forte, this means that if I receive a flash of inspiration, I will immediately abandon beta-reading for about a day and write whatever came to mind. If this happens... I apologize in advance... though there isn't much to do there...
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
All stories should be betaread!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Unless you go into exhaustive detail of the dismemberment of a human being, and add necrophilia, and add pictures to go with it, and claim that it is a true story, and have no other plot... Then I rather enjoy tea!
