|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta reader, I am "clean". Meaning: I get everything perfect. Or rather, I try my hardest to. As a perfectionist (yup, I can hear you going "Oh god...") I like for things to be...perfect. No typos, no spelling/grammar/punctuation/anything else you can think of errors.
Yeah... I'm not too sure what they mean by beta-reading style. Just read the above, I guess.
My expectations are that you really think you need a beta reader. I don't want to beta someone who's going to turn down every single suggestion I make. Rudely. At least make a dignified response. I DO want someone who may not have English (hear that, I'm not fluent in anything...yet :0]) as their first language, or someone who has no idea how to use Spellcheck or grammar check on Microsoft. Or just someone who really thinks they need it (like I stated earlier).
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm nitpicky, and I've been told multiple times I get the job done quickly.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have issues with fragmented sentences. If it's in first person or someone's speaking, then it can be left alone. But I have no way to know if you wish to keep a fragmented sentence in third person. Also, run on sentences get on my nerves (but that would make me a hypocrite). I'm also easily irritated.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Horror stories and romance stories I really like. Angst is like a drug, or cookies-you can never get enough.
I would really love to beta my four favorite categories: Alex Rider, Clique, Harry Potter, and Twilight. All of these are preferential, though, and PM me if you have any other stories. I read around, watch a lot of television, and see a lot of movies.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would really rather not beta any spiritual or family stories. And I just don't do manga. Sorry. I prefer canon romances, but if you've got a really well done OC I'll consider.
