Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm not very particular when it comes to Beta-reading, other than the fact that I would prefer people who have put a slight effort into their work. I do occasionally put in some opinions, advice or ideas; I only do this to help improve other writer's writing, not to criticize them in any way, shape or form.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am good at using vivid verbs, strong adjectives, sentence variation, alliteration and other things like that, which spice up a piece of writing. I am also quite handy when it comes to grammatical errors and proper punctuation.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not very good when it comes to past and present tense, and I often slip up when it comes to first and third person.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
So long as I know what the story is about and what is going on, I really don't mind anything. I am rather fond of continuations of series, like if the next book hasn't been released and someone tries to take a stab at there own version of the next book. I also enjoy stories that have OC's and crossovers; even if I sometimes don't know what the other worlds/books that are used, if it is well written, I enjoy them. I also happen to like slash pairings.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anything that has a lot of swearing (shit, crap and other stuff like that does not count in my books) and abuse is definitely not something that I would like to beta-read. I like reading humor, but when it comes to beta-reading it, I am absolutely dreadful (unless if the humor in it doesn't need any corrections.)
