Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a pretty good corrector, I know grammar and all, and I've spent the last 3 years writing in books when they forget apostrophes or anything. I'll go through and correct it as well as I can, but I don't promise it to be perfect. I am really good at finding mistakes in things I haven't written, but I have been known to be a bit harsh when spelling is really bad. I like helping people with anything, and I don't like finding spelling mistakes posted for the whole world to see, so I would happily correct anything, so long as it gets posted without spelling errors.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good with Grammar, spelling and punctuation. I've been working on correcting stories written by my friends, and I'm just as good at it as the computers. I have spent a while taking stories off the internet and correcting them on my computer for my friends because none of us like misspelling much.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I don't know of any real weaknesses but I'll put them up when I find a chink in my armor.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
stories must be in English.

I'd like to read pairings that are realistic, with parings that are already set, or pairings that can be seen from the way the story progresses.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
they cannot be pairings where another pairing was clearly set, like this person and that person got married, then I read a fanfic where she married a completely different person.

also, pairings cannot be the impossible pairings- like someone with their arch-enemy, or someone suddenly going homosexual. I've got nothing against that as itself, but not that many people in the stories I'm up to beta-ing have gay/lesbians. I don't like stories that are like, one person wobbling back and forth between others, like person A going with person B, then C, then D, then back to A, then ending with person Z. those are annoying and make person A a slut/whore/bitch/player/idiot.

I also don't like the stories that include the author as a character, or where someone that died suddenly reappears with some stupid excuse like amnesia.
