Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love editing work for others! My editing style is to offer constructive criticism, I never try to be rude, or mean, and I hope I never come off that way. I like to offer my opinions to make a piece sound better, or to take a piece to the next level. The way I look at writing is a fresh eye never hurts, it's always good to have another opinion on any piece of writing.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My greatest strengths when it comes to writing is sentence structure, and spelling. I love to mix short and complex sentences into my writing, because I feel like that alone can bring a piece from so-so to extraordinary, and spelling has always been one of my strong points.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My greatest weakness as a writer are commas, I have the most difficult time figuring out where those little buggers go, and how to use them effectively. I'll admit that on more than one occasion, I have used a Google grammar website to help me figure it out. I also have occasional issues with verb tense. Lately I've been really into first person point of view, but I keep forgetting that the verb tense has to remain first person and the end result is usually very confusing! But I'm happy to say that I'm getting better!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Romance, romance, romance. I am the biggest romantic; I will take romance in any form pretty much. My personal favorite is humor/romance, or romance/ hurt/comfort. There is so much you can do with the latter that it just lends itself well to any pairing or fandom! I am also a big fan of yaoi, as long as the sex scenes are tasteful and not too graphic.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Horror and drama. I am huge chicken and don't deal with horror well, I'm talking sleeping with the lights on for a week after seeing a scary movie, kind of chicken. So no horror fics for me! And drama, for lack of a better description, is way to dramatic for me. I hate drama in my personal life, and have never found a good drama fic that hasn't been too over the top.
