Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm just starting out as a Beta and currently Beta-ing one story. I view the Beta process as a qualitative peer edit - pointing out mistakes and ways to fix them, but to also highlight strong points or things that are wonderful to read. I also like to give feedback on how people do as a writer and how chapters come off to us as the reader. I come in with a positive attitude that what I'm about to read will be wonderful and an enjoyable piece of literature. However, I am in college, so it may take at least a few days to a week to get something read and edited thoroughly, but I promise that it will be worth it. :)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am highly trained in comma usage, including dealing with comma splices, when a comma is needed, and list usage and commas. I am also skilled in grammar and verb tenses. If something is confusing, I can almost always provide a solution, usually involving the same words that the author started with. I can easily spot typos and missing letters/words.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My biggest weakness is that I have just begun Beta-ing and am still fairly new to the process.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would really prefer genres I am familiar with, being that of W.i.t.c.h., House MD, Lost, Four Brothers, Troy, and The Hunger Games Series. If you ever want to run a genre by me, just send me a message and I'll let you know if it's something I'm cool with reading.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Please no anime/manga type stories. I know nothing about them and have no interest in them. And please, no horror movie fan fictions.
