Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello. My pen name is SOSNoel.

I do grammar, usage; basically I do the general correcting. I'll also try to help you improve your story/stories and maybe add and remove some ideas (with your permission of course. After all, you're the author!)
I'm still learning but I assure you, I'll use all my knowledge and future knowledge to make your story/stories the best ever!
I'm pretty good at lengthening your stories. I used to help one of my friends on making her writing longer.

If you want my help, just pm me. Aim for perfection!

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
An area that I excel at is literacy. I'm intolerant of text talk or never-ending paragraphs. Grammar Nazis for the world! Also, I can help make stories longer so that you get no more 'you have short chapters' but I won't make your readers think 'these chapters are too long.'

I think I do the best with Tragedy because I just love it to pieces. I always try to plan for it to touch my readers deeply, even if I cry while writing. If you could do that, then you know that it's good and it will touch someone, even though it isn't everyone, deeply.

I've gotten more in touch with reality now so I'm going to give you a touch of realism. We all know life isn't filled with only rainbows or only grief. You have your great times, and you have your crappy times.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have never found that special person that makes me feel better. Instead, I constantly hate (insert people's names here). I can help you on unrequited love but I don't exactly know the mushy-gushy love. I know 'I'll do anything for you' love but barely 'he's/she's my everything' love. I kinda know it but... haven't experienced it.
Hopefully you'll still ask me to be one of your betas for romance stories though.

You cannot fully trust me on comedy. Although my classmates say I'm funny, it's usually because I'm clueless. If you find my words humorous, then it's all good.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I. Love. Tragedy! I'll beta tragedies any day! I feel inspired to just read one.
Only one question.. Where the hell are the friendship/tragedy stories? Come on!

Second place: Romance! I'm learning a lot about romance.. specifically by one friend's experiences. (cough-Luchia-cough)

Third place: Hurt/Comfort. Or just plain hurt. I've faced situations when I've been hurt and a friend was there to comfort me. I can give your story a realistic vibe. I also have had a lot of experience in those times when you feel like killing yourself or isolating yourself from the world.

Fourth: Friendship. Where is the realism here, people? 1. Not all friendships have happy endings. 2. I've learned that it's almost impossible to have a true friend without any secrets unless you're very young.

Fifth: Drama. Enough said.

Anything but Sci-Fi and Horror I think.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not beta read:

-Yaoi, Yuri, Slash, Gay (No offense. It's just not my cup of tea. Pun not intended.)

-Stories that look like they have 50 sentences in one paragraph

-Major OCs that I think go way too far. For Example: A character's long-lost sister. Very illogical. I will only take it if it has a good enough background along with it.

-Stories that are fandoms of something I've never heard of.

I've become less picky. Hooray!
