Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
With my background as a language tutor and a communications major (which deals mostly with writing), I believe I could help others out with their stories. I also find writing to be an emotional thing for me so I will be gentle and constructive with my criticisms, and I would most likely ask what sparked the inspiration (even if it's just because, that's cool, I get it) for a certain genre or plot. I'm observant so I'd notice details in the story (such as hints of foreshadowing, visual cues from characters, etc).
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar and spelling most likely. I'm used as a human dictionary (and have been described as such) by my peers so I am particular with the choice of words as well.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not good with summarizing (unfortunately) and I tend to be overly descriptive due to that but I am working to improve it. I only realize the *too* long descriptions when I do start reading.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
It's easier for me to proofread a fanfiction where I know the characters and the world they come from, so anything I'm engaged in. Just ask me if I know the fandom you're writing for because I don't write for every show (or others) I know (or check out the categories I have). I mostly just watch and read these days. AUs are very welcome as well. ;)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I find it difficult to read the story if the romantic pairing has a HUGE age gap that is cringe worthy (like Gabrinette - a parent who has a teenage child and a teenager?! NOPE)
