Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm new to beta reading, but it's something I think everyone could benefit from, even if you're an experienced writer. The things I look for most would probably fall under syntax and grammar. I'm more interested in fixing phrasing and punctuation than I am in giving plot advice, but I'd be willing to do that if needed.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at grasping emotions of characters and then relating them back to the reader. I write with a lot of similes and comparisons, mostly so I can relate, but also, so the reader can. I'm able to write very well in first person but I can do third person, too, though it's not necessarily my preferred voice. Grammar is also a strong point of mine.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm terrible at completing longer stories or coming up with a plot that will enable me to write something longer.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Crime dramas like Law and Order or CSI. I'd also prefer science fiction anywhere from Star Trek to The X-Files. Those are the two genres I mainly dabble in and know them the best.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'd rather avoid anything in the manga/anime genre, but with the exceptions of Cowboy Bebop and Trigun. I also don't want to do anything similar to Desperate Housewives or The O.C.
