Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have a simple style, not over doing it because sometimes less is more. I like being able to use one or two really good words instead of a four or five mediocre ones to get a point across as easily and creatively as possible. I could do basic proof reading or help further with small edits and suggestions if wanted. I don't mind beta-reading for people starting out, who aren't confident that they've got it right yet but I'm be glad to beta-read for anyone who feels they need it. If you feel you have a really good story but don't have the right words to get it across then I'd be happy to you're writing in your second (or third!) language then I'd be able to help bridge the gap between the languages. A separate description of what the aim of the chapter would be great, what you want to tell the reader, how you want it to come across.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I don't like leaving things half done so if I'm given something to work on I'll make sure it's the best I can make it. I have a keen eye for grammar, from the small slip ups with 'their' 'there' and 'they're' to the lines that just don't quite make sense when you read over them. The spelling mistake will be spotted and corrected, if not on the first read then the second! Anything you or I are uncertain about will be looked up in dictionary and/or thesaurus. I can rephrase things to make them have more of an impact when they're important or to make them blend in and flow better. I like making a story flow well and to make it easy and seamless to read.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I can get too caught up with small details that I'll forget about the bigger picture. If I get bored of what I'm reading I can tune out and miss things and have to re-read which makes everything take longer. If I don't like what I'm reading I'm not as motivated to do my best with it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Stories based off TV shows or movies. I prefer realistic story lines/universes but I'd be open to most things. I love shows like Castle, Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Big Bang Theory, The O.C, Chuck, Burn Notice and similar/related shows.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't mind proof-reading any story but for beta-reading I'd prefer no heavily sexual stories.
