Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love to read and write, as is pretty obvious from the whole FanFiction membership and all. I actually love to write and rewrite everything I do. I'm apparently fantastic at editing (according to my schools twelfth grade AP English teacher (I've been her aide for the last two years). I usually go through once just looking for minor (and major) grammatical and punctuation errors. After that I can focus on characterization and plot organization and things like that. It usually only takes me about an hour, maybe a bit more if it is an exceptionally long chapter or more than one chapter, but it still should get back to you that same day, unless it's sent right after I check my email (which I do twice a day) in which case it may be another day. I'll make any notes I have in a different color and highlighter. Also, I may change wording a bit (I get bothered when the same word is overused) but always leave the original words there, just make suggestions in another color. I'm insanely organized so the type of suggestion will probably be color coded. It just makes it easier for me and usually others as well. Anyway, if you would like my help send me a PM and I'll get back to you within a day.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
As I said above, I'm very good with grammatical and punctuation errors and basic editing, but also I'm decent at coming up with different ways to state the same thing (almost like a human thesaurus). I can also help with character and plot development and I'm also here to just bounce ideas off of if needed (Writer's Block sucks, I know).
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
SPELLING! I cannot spell to save my life. I check everything and anything I'm unsure of gets looked up in the dictionary. If the word I spelled shows up in the dictionary (and has the meaning I intended) I'm happy. If not, I'm very sorry, but it's getting better so it should at least be legible enough to tell what I meant to say.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I really like romance and drama with some action. I'm a bit of an adrenaline junkie so that little bit of action and suspense entertains me. I get more into what I'm reading and if I enjoy what I'm reading, my editing is significantly better. Trust me.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I won't really turn away anything, but as I'm not much of a religious person (I know more than I ever needed to about Western/Roman Catholocism because of my grandparents and six years of private Catholic school) but spiritual stuff is not my thing. Also, I never really understood westerns. They confuse me. Other than that, there really isn't anything I won't work with.
