|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a reader, I tend to be fairly partial towards characters and how they develop. Depth and background are important, not mere inserts. Writing style is also important - something different yet fluid, not one that encompasses a whole bunch of loopholes that pop up because it's difficult to explain such as such, or there is a want to just skip to the excitement and ignore the build up. Grammar, spelling and punctuation are easy to learn, and I very much enjoy reading that which has at least a certain standard of each. I fancy unpredictable characters and plot twists that'll keep me crunching on these fingernails till there no chapters left to read. Effort is good.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm fairly good at descriptions as I do poetry sometimes. Fleshing out characters, spelling and grammar I can do as well. As a reader, on the other hand, I can't help but pick at punctuation and loopholes, and pick at any lack of character depth or plot cliches.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As a writer, I can never stick at any one story at a time, and my style is always changing. I have the tendency to have run-on sentences when I get too excited and often have loads of typos.O:
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
First and foremost, I'd prefer reading a story that has already been reviewed and re-reviewed by the author himself/herself. Sometimes loads of typos can get to be migraine-causing. Other than that, I wouldn't say I have much preferrence for anything in particular, although something original and unconventional - be it the writing style or the plot in itself - I will always willingly lunge at. Action, adventure and romance is good, but I'll read anything.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'd rather not betaread Anime or anything that mirrors pointless chick lit. I'd also hate to betaread an effortless piece of work filled with typos and spelling errors that had been written for the mere purpose of smut, gore or a shameless two-dimensional OC insert. But I'll read them all the same. (:
