Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader, I will be overly critical. I will be mean. I will be direct, blunt, and rather rude. Frankly, however, a writer should be expecting this from a beta-reader. Our job is not to tell you your story is fantastic and will revolutionize publishing. It is, rather, to tell you what is wrong with it. If you wish to acquire my services, be prepared for this. Understand that I do not mean to sequester your hopes and dreams or tear you apart. My goal is to make you a better writer, not befriend you, and although I am young, I am experienced, and know my way around grammar and literature. Of course, if your writing is good, I will be the first to tell you so.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excel in grammar/conjunctions, plot development, word choice, and writing style. I would love to help you with anything from basic proofreading to deeper-level plot analysis, and can give you advice on how to keep your writing interesting and fast-paced. I can also help with figuring out your demographic and target audience, which many writers tend to overlook.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I believe I can be a help in all fields, but I am not as proficient in character development and condensing stories. I have a tendency to over-describe and use too much figurative language. If you ask me to do any of these things, I would still love to and will be able to help, but I may not be the most helpful.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I have no preference as to the stories I beta-read.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I have no preference as to the stories I beta-read.
