Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
University student in Anchorage, Alaska, USA. I write and proofread as a break from work and school. I am studying Anthropology in hopes of attending graduate school in a year and a half.

As a beta, if I am not given information on how the original writer woudl liek their work proofread I tend to be very critical when it comes to spelling, capitalization, and punctuation, not that I never miss any mistakes but I try my best. I am learning to become a better proofreader/beta-er through both this and playing on Distributed Proofreaders for the Gutenberg project. Proofreading is an area of weakness for me at work and something I need to improve about myself so I would love the chance to see how well I can do and to have criticism (constructive or not) thrown back in my face.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Pretty decent at spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization.
Better at sentence structure and catching ideas that are unfocused, unfinished, not making sense.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
A bit on spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization; all areas I am actively looking for ways and opportunities to proof for others in order to improve my own abilities.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
No preference at the present time as to which stories I prefer to beta.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No preference at the present time as to which stories I not prefer to beta.
