Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm new to beta-reading in general, but I'm an experienced editor for my school newspaper. If you send me a story to beta-read, I'll check the grammar and things of that sort, I'll make sure your story makes sense, and I'll make sure your story is written in such a manner that it appeals to a lot of readers. To do so, I'll give you a list of any grammatical errors after looking it over and some tips on how to make it better. If it's already perfect, good for you! You're an awesome author!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at finding most spelling and grammar errors, and as for making the story better, I have a good vocabulary and can give word replacement suggestions. Other than that, the only area I really excel at is making sure there's voice in the story, if necessary.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm really new to the beta-reading community, and obviously, I'll have to learn by experience. As for grammar, I've had a few problems with capitalization, but my worst area overall is paragraphing. If someone was to ask me to find the right places to start a new paragraph in a story, I probably wouldn't be able to do it right.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to have stories in these categories because I'm very familiar with them; however, I can do other categories because these aren't the only ones I'm familiar with:

Twilight Harry Potter Bible Princess Diaries Maple Story Gaia Online Howl's Moving Castle Star Wars Animal Crossing Dance Dance Revolution Pokemon Sweeney Todd Tangerine Vampires Warriors Percy Jackson and the Olympians etc.
My preferred genres are general, humor, parody, romance, suspense, horror, and AU, although I'll do any genres.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not really any good at editing poems, and I don't really like any classic 20th century literature, so I doubt I'll do a good job on either of those.
