Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I like to think of myself as a great beta, who finds all mistakes, fixes them and tells the original author my opinion. The first two requirements I fulfill, but I have to admit that I still have trouble with telling others about their mistakes- it makes me uncomfortable. I'm nice that way. =) Anyway, when I beta a story, I correct all spelling- and grammar mistakes and point out plotholes whenever I notice some. If I like the author, I'm even going to suggest ways to fill those holes or how to improve scenes which don't seem right.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I dedicate myself fully to fics that interest me, trying my hardest to help make the story popular with readers and make it reach its full potential. Also, I'm quite quick with beta'ing as I read a lot and like my work as a beta. I'm skilled in dramatic/tragic writing, but I don't usually beta or read those. I'm quite humorous a person, so humorous stories are something I'd be able to beta, too.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes it's hard for me to point out glaring deficiencies in an author's work (i.e. generally bad writing style, strong OOCness or extreme grammar mistakes.). If you are too sensitive a person when it comes to criticism, I wouldn't ask me to be your beta.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like Romance, Adventure, Action, Mystery, Supernatural, actually, I like nearly all genres. I have no problem with slash- I love it, so don't hesitate to ask me if you need a beta confortable with that kind of thing. =)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Tradegies, depressing stories. Uplifting tragedies (there ARE some), though, I would beta.
