Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I will only read stories about things I am familiar with. I will offer an objective opinion on your story, tell you what I feel needs to be changed to improve the quality of the story, and check grammar, spelling, and punctuation. I'm sorry, but I can't take on too many jobs at once, so if I'm swamped, I may not be able to read your story immediately, but I will try to get around to it as fast as possible if you'd still like me to read it.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good at proofreading. I can tell pretty well whether a romance will appeal to readers. I have been reading fanfiction for a long time, and I have a fairly good knowledge of cliches and traditional approaches and mistakes. If I like a story I will complement it in a way that tells what exactly it was I liked, and if I didn't like it I will supply my opinion on what can be done to change it.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not very good at sensing what a writer means to convey, and I might dislike some portion of a story if I fail to recognize what it was the writer intended to say to the reader with it. Other than that, I would say my main weakness lies in my inexperience as a betareader. I don't have a lot of practice, but I learn quickly.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I very much enjoy gushy romantic fics. I also like random humorous ones, and I have written several of these myself. I like stories outside of the norm, with things happening in them you wouldn't have originally expected. I like to read in general, so most stories are acceptable.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't like Angst fics as much as others, although I've written a couple. I'll read them, no problem, but they aren't my preference. I also don't like to read stories that go on for 20 or 30 chapters where nothing really happens, and I probably won't accept a story if it seems it will turn out like one of those. I don't do Mary-Sues who aren't accepted as Mary-Sues. If your story is about you or your friends or some girl in our world who gets all the Sohmas, fine, whatever. But some long lost Sohma girl nobody knows about who mysteriously appears is Not My Cup Of Tea.
