Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've actually never been a beta-reader before, but I'm interested in proofing the stories of other would-be authors. I love to write, and have been doing so since I was a little girl. Currently, I'm 17. When I proof the stories of others, I like to look for strengths in the writing, but I am also willing to offer suggestions of poor word choice, lack of flow, etc. I am honest, but hardly brutal! Anyone who wishes to have me betaread their stories should have, at the very least, spell-checked beforehand. Honest typo-s are acceptable, but insane and easily fixed errors in spelling and obvious grammar are not my favorite to read by any stretch of the means.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
In writing, I am extremely good at descriptions. I like to look at stories from the perspective of characters who are more on the outskirts, rather than right in the action. I spin my tales so that they fit the story line and are in-character, but I like to think that they are also original. I'd like to say that I am very honest in my opinions, because I believe that constructive criticism truly helps us become better writers. I never discourage anyone who is trying from writing a story, and I'm willing to share ideas, as well as a different perspective, to anyone who is stuck.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am a bit of a perfectionist. It irritates me when people write LyK3 tH!s. I catch grammatical errors and spelling errors easily, and I will always make sure to fix them, but ones that are all too frequent seem to me less born of honest mistakes and more grown from carelessness. Therefore, I'd rather not read the writing of someone who refuses to use spellcheck!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like any story that is original and written in an expressive way.I would prefer to beta any story written about books, movies, or tv shows. My absolute favorite fanfictions are Twilight and Instant Star (which had the worst ending ever!). I'd like to read just about anything!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Honestly, I'm not very interested in anime.I'd prefer not to read a story about something I've never heard of before!
