|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:
Howl's Moving Castle
Dance Dance Revolution
Percy Jackson and the Olympians
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.
