Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am very nit-picky, though by reading my stories you probably can't tell. I find it easier to edit other's stories than to edit my own. If anyone would want to use my beta-reading services I would want an application and resume sent in. Haha, I'm just kidding. But I would like to be told in advanced what the writer is trying to accomplish with a chapter/story. Also I would want to know what the writer feels is weak about his/her writing so I could keep an eye open for that problem.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm very good with grammar (mostly) and I am able to notice subtle characteristics about writing that many don't seem to notice, i.e. metaphors, symbolism, etc. My spelling is also very good. If a word doesn't look right to me, I'll go search it up in at least three different dictionaries. I'm also really good with using the words "there", "their", and "they're. This may seem pointless, but you wouldn't believe how many times people mix up those words.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Though my spelling is really good, I do suffer from a small case of dyslexia. I get some letters and words mixed up, which causes me to read slowly so I don't get confused. So if you do use me as a beta, be warned that I read slowly.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm open to all types of stories and writing. But I really prefer stories that aren't too out there in their ideas. Stories that are realistic and plausible are favorites, though there are some exceptions. Of course I realize that writing opens the door to a whole world of ideas, so for the most part I'm welcoming of those ideas.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't particularly like fantasy stories, i.e. stories involving witches, warlocks, elves, magical fairies, etc. I find them weird.
