Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Heeey!

Well, I supose I should write with correct grammar if I'm applying for a beta-reader. So, Hey.

I have a lot of spare time and love to read. That is my main reason for this entire beta-reader idea.

My style is, well I don't exactly have one, nor do I understand what they expect me to write here. I'll just say that I read the story over once then break it down and fix what doesn't quite flow right, or doesn't make sense or just doesn't work. And by fix, I mean I talk to the author/authoress and tell them what I feel doesn't make sense or work, or what could have been done better and then give suggestions.

I sure that's enough for you to know, so I'll move along and talk about my strengths and weaknesses and such.

Anyone wishing to aquire my services just needs to be able to read the story through as a 'looking from outside the box' point of veiw and let me know what would make it better.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Strengths? My strengths would have to be my ability to read over a story quickly and get back to the person as soon as I'm done. I make mental notes about all the things that don't seem correct to myself. And sometimes write them down if there are quotes or sentences that I need to compare. I don't get frustrated, im very patient. I don't take over the story for the person. And I'm usually rather quick at picking up the story line. I have beta-read before, and have been told that I am very blunt. I don't beat around the bush.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Uh-Oh... Weaknesses. Okay my weaknesses, as i'm not ashamed to say may very well be my lack of a spell-checker. That means I am not a natural at picking out the smallest of grammar mistakes. I notice the obvious ones, like when you spell the, teh. Or something similar. But when it comes down to the small things like if you should say may or can or who or whom, I'm completely lost. I may also be a little too honest sometimes. .. In the .. nicest way possible.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Preferred. Well I don't have a preference. It'd be easier to correct if I knew the story and characters accordingly, but I love challenges and If you're willing to breif me on things I should know then I'm all set to go. In a story you should be able to not know a thing about the characters or settings etc. but aquire that knowledge as you read on. I do however prefer long stories to short ones. But that is just my reading style.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not My Cup Of Tea. I don't like tea to be frank. The only thing I would not beta-read are my own stories, because it is practically impossible for me. Other than that, I'll beta-read anything. I'd even beta-read things in other languages... If I was fluent in anything other than English. I would probably not beta-read a horror story, no wait, scratch that. That may actually help me get over my irrational fear of horror stories... and movies. So, I suppose nothing is not my cup of tea.
