Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm from England and 15 so still quite inexperianced however, I am a better critic than a writer like probably most people are. I've lived in Canada so I know a bit about the school system and other aspects like that which would be very similar to the American system.

I would expect a person to have used a spell checker but I will make sure everything is alright anyways, it just makes my job easier.

I don't think I have a specific style but I don't particularly like the use of clich├ęs where not necessary as I think every writer should be more original and it without them the writer creates their own style.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I use a wide range of vocabulary due to my year 7 & 8 teacher whos best friend was probably a thesaurus. Also, I'm very creative with my writing and I don't like repetition of phrases and words unless done for effect.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness are that I don't really know much about some topics that are 'American' so like the hospital system because we have the NHS so we don't really have to pay for medical treatment which for me is a god send. Also due the fact, I am english my spelling differs.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer the CSI franchise as that is what I'm interested in but I also have knowledge in NCIS however I am a Tate person so don't expect me to know anything about Ziva or Jenny.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't like to read anything that is purposely racist or disrespectful to others. I won't read certains pairing because I don't have that knowledge like anything Zive or Jenny based fics or Grissom/Sara. Also I don't like to read slash fics due to personal preference.
