Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a kid, I used to playact up and down my driveway- pretending to be whichever character’s story I had just read. Little eight year-old me would pace the driveway, writing out the rest of the story in my head. I imagined beautiful dresses, blizzards, famines, handsome princes, dragons, oceans--- anything I could think of. And then, as inevitably happened, I would realize with surprise that the characters I made believe I was no longer faintly resembled those I’d read in the book. That was when I'd find another book to pretend.

As a beta-reader, I look to strengthen character development. I read a story for the people within, and so it is crucial that everyone develop their characters fully. I also look for flow of language, grammar, original plot and well-utilized scenes.

I am happy to beta for ff on any book that I've read.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar. I've read "Eats Shoots and Leaves", and I speak English very accurately.
Characters. I need characters that I can really relate to, and I'm good at pulling those out. Critiquing. I am good at describing how a piece of writing made me feel, and identifying places where it was strong, as well as where it could have been stronger.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling. I couldn't type accurately to save my life, and so spelling mistakes tend to slip by me.
Plot. I write drabbles,so I don't have much experience creating plots, but I *AM good at pushing the plot forward. Time. Sometimes, school takes over my life, and fanfiction comes second to that.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Any story that really develops a character without hitchhiking on Mary Sues or pure canon is something that I really appreciate.

Romance, Angst, whatever..

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I won't beta sex scenes. I also won't read crossover fics or stories with the author/the author's friends/the author's crush etc. in them.
