Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am just an amateur, but I am pretty skilled with the english language. However, this is the ONLY language I am familiar with, so for those of you who speak languages other than english, I may not be of much help. I am pretty picky about grammar and spelling and this is an annoying tendency of me. I'll admit I'm a big nerd. I'd love to help anyone who needs it, but if you have extra long stories or sections you expect me to read, I might take longer than you'd prefer. Also, I'm not familiar with everything on this site, as in, I'm not a big fan of anime and cartoons. I can help with the structure of the story and spelling and all the basic stuff, but I may not be much help if you forgot a detail portaining to the subject. I would particularly like to beta for Twilight or Harry Potter or House, M.D. stories, as I know quite a bit about these subjects. I would like to experiement with some new things, though, so if you have any recommendations, please send me a private message. Thanks, and I hope I can be of some help.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My biggest strengths are grammar-punctuation, structure, etc. and spelling. I also think out of the box quite a bit-all my friends say that I come up with things and interpret everyday things a lot differently than anyone else they've ever met. If you need ideas, I'd be happy to help.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
First off, I'm really picky. That is really annoying. I'm also a bit distracted sometimes, so I may take a while getting back to you. I am also really bad at staying on topic. My english teacher always fusses at me for that. I'm a big 'jokester' and a lot of times I try to take humor out of more serious things. I also don't have the best memory, so you may have to remind me of things from time to time.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Books are my specialty! I get a lot of inspiration from books, and I would love to have some great recommendations. Really the only things I've looked into so far are Twilight (my absolute favorite series ever!) and Harry Potter(almost equally as amazing!). I'm open to anything, though, but I may not be the best if you have questions about the characters or original story if I haven't read it. Also, my favorite TV shows are Gilmore Girls and House, so I'd love to betaread some of those. Music lyrics and poems are also of interest.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not into anime and cartoons. Please don't ask me to beatread these, because often times I have a hard time saying no, and I don't want to get labeled a bad betareader because I didn't like the topic I was reading about. Also, I don't like mysterys too much, but I can deal if it's not too boring or not drawn out forever.
