Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta reader I would like the help the community in general! I've had a lot of experience with writing, through my English classes and have a pretty good eye for picking out punctuation and grammar. Ive been reading books for years, and through doing that gained an appropriate level of understanding for story flow.

If you wish for me to beta your story, It'd be a good idea to outline how far I am able to change the story. If I don't think a certain paragraph works a specific way and see how it can be changed for the better; I might change it. But if you don't want your story chopped and changed then that should be specified. If it is requested that spelling, grammar and punctuation are the only required beta-ing for a story then that too should be specified. Its easier that way, saves a lot of wasted time and effort.

I myself love to read others stories, and grasp a little insight into they're person while doing so. I enjoy reading in general immensely.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths in general are punctuation, spelling and grammar. I can pick out wrong sentence use, or words that would work better in a different way. I'm not against grabbing a dictionary etc, and hoping to improve a fic. I can put in the time and get work done on time also.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Basically with beta-ing I can see my weakness straight up to be hard core sex scenes. I won't accept them, because I myself can't write them, let alone critique!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Genre types in general, anything is fine. I have nothing against yaoi or yuri rated fanfics, nor graphic bloody macabre slashers. Though you must keep in mind that my ability to beta a story is generally linked to what I have previously read book-wise. Though that won't stop me from having a go!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Nothing I wouldn't attempt, though as I have previously stated, hard core sex fics will only get my beta-ing for light punctuation, grammar and spelling. I can't do more for that since I'm not accustomed to the genre.
