Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am like most people who enjoy reading not only a good story, but one that's also well-written. I like seeing the proper use of grammar and conventions in writing because I personally find that the story within seems that much better. I also believe that the way you write reflects who you are.
Typically, I read with a critical eye first to find grammar and punctuation mistakes, and then I read through again to see if the story flows. Anyone wanting me to beta for them should be open to suggestions and corrections, and not mind if something I write comes out a little insensitive (I try not to seem too harsh, but things happen...).
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar and punctuation usage, paragraphing, dialogue, topics, and general flow
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'll admit, some mistakes will slip past me and there are certain rules that I never really understood why they were necessary. Because of this, I wouldn't recommend taking my edited version as final, but instead read through it again yourself.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer fantasy and realistic-fiction overall, but I also enjoy a good thiller, action/adventure, or sci-fi here and there. It's also helpful if the story I beta is of a fandom I'm familiar with.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Horror stories. Something that doesn't in any way relate back to the fandom (even AUs relate back). Essays. Really long-winded descriptive pieces (exceptions will be made).
