Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello, I'm guardgurlXOXO, but you can call me GG. As a beta, I will first look at quality of stories. That means overall idea for a story and if you are a good and creative writer. So, if I decide then to beta your story, I will still look at quality of the chapters, but I will also pick out grammar mistakes, weak sentence structure and style things such as that. I will check for spelling mistakes or misplaced/extra words. Also, I will always give suggestions, but realize that you do not have to take them. Other than being a good writer and having an effective plotline, I have no requirements to beta anyones story, and will try to beta everyone who wants me to.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Currently, I am enrolled in a journalism class and going onto the newspaper at my school, so I have improved my writing and have more information regarding grammar and sentence structure. Also, I have been writing for a while now and am continuing to improve my writing. For me, I feel I am strong in adding detail, but always want to add more, since I feel that detail really makes a story amazing.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Some of my weaknesses is that since I am fairly young, I have not been exposed to writing as much as people who are out of high school. Also, though I am fairly good at catching grammar mistakes, sometimes I am so enthralled in good stories that I miss them, but I will, however, read chapters at least twice.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I do not have any preferences, however stories I am more willing to beta are ones that I know what the book/movie/tv show is about. However, I am open to try new things, though in the beginning I will let you know if I have seen the tv show/movie or read the book (or know any of the miscellaneous categories) so that you can decide if I am adequate for your story.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Though I have nothing against people who write slash/gay stories or against the stories themselves, I will not, however, beta them, just because it does make me feel uncomfortable and I don't think that I would know how to beta them correctly. Also, I will not beta stories that are just complete smut and do not really have a plot line except for just sex.
