Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello! My name is Carly. I'm a 15 year writer, and I love literature! As a beta reader, I focus mainly on spelling, grammar, and continuity errors (The first two more than the latter), as well as assist with any plot issues when you're stumped or just wanting an outsider's opinion. I've learned, while writing my own stories, that an onlooker's input is extremely important, and I am always willing to give input when needed. When beta reading, I find that taking one quick first look over, to fix grammar and spelling mistakes, and then a couple more run throughs to make sure that it flows smoothly and fits correctly is the best policy for myself as a beta, so I try to stick to that.

My expectations from you, the writer, is that you will be open to new and helpful ideas (unless they're utterly crap ideas, which I know I can definitely come up with. If I do, tell me), and that you will take any ideas into consideration. I, in return, will do the same to my best ability. I'm normally a pretty decent person to get along with, so working with me will usually not be a hassle.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strength would definitely have to be spelling. My vocabulary and spelling are at post-secondary levels, according to government testing, and I have always had an eye for picking out spelling errors in work.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness would have to be grammar. While I'm not awful at it, I definitely have to think more about it than I do with anything else. Which is why I try to put most of my focus on grammar, so that I don't make any mistakes with it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I've always been a sucker for romantic stories, so those are definitely on my preferred list. Action and suspense are always good, too. I'm not too picky of a person.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Slash fics without reason aren't my favourites. When it just seems to be, "Oh, we're friends, let's f**k.", it really grinds my gears. So slash fics aren't my favourite, when there's no reasoning behind them. Although, I'm sort of open to reading them and trying to help the story make a little more sense! But 98% of the time, I probably won't read slash.
