|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I believe that being a beta-writer is the other side of being an author. It mirrors and reflects back what we all aim for in this site: to grow as an author; to emerge as a reader with a critical eye that not only has stupendous ability on how to read, pinpoint grammar/vocabulary mistakes, rather, the ability to deeply analyze plot, characterization, visualization of a story/poem. Literary works, whether you are on the writing side as an author or on being the recepient side as the reader requires skills. A person who can read but cannot discern mistakes or interpret hidden meanings within a plot is as useless as an author who writes over tens and thousands of words in a chapter that don't make sense...Hence, I believe that in order to be a good writer, we should be good readers as well. And that's why I've volunteered for this. I believe that by being a beta-reader, it would aid in enhancing my writing.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a very critical eye when it comes to grammar and vocabulary. 99% of the time, I will spot your mistakes no matter how thick the paragraph or how minute the error. I specialize in characterization and visualization.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am rather weak in fight scenes or lightning-quick scenes. I also tend to be a bit overly critical over grammar and vocab that I sometimes overlook errors in terms of continuity of the plot and such.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Romance, Angst & Drama
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I abstain from: YURI/YAOI/SHOUNEN-AI/SHOUJO-AI, Action Fics
