Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
When I edit my own stories, I read carefully noting most gramatical errors I find. I also like to see how the story flows etc. When I look for spelling mistakes, sometimes I read from the bottom-up. This helps because you don't pay much attention to the story and focus more on the words and their spelling errors. I also read out-loud to find any parts where the story doesn't flow, or just other sentence fluency typos.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Being in a AP english class, we often check eachother's papers. This makes it easier to find mistakes within the writting. I am often good at locating mistakes where the word's tense does not make sense. Ex: "She wear her sweater and go outside." It's also easy for me to find spelling errors with homophones. Ex: "Eye know" as opposed to "I know". And finally, I check sentence and paragraph fluency to make sure everything makes sense.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes, I do miss errors, but only because I read fast and/or skim the story. But when I slow down, it makes it so much easier.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Length; I prefer mostly shorter stories, ones that don't get too tedious to read. But not necessarily one-chapter stories that are only a few paragraphs long. When I have a lot of free time, I like to read stories with more than a few chapters. Genres; I prefer humor stories with maybe a little romance (most of my stories are). Adventurous stories are also fun to read. Pairings; If I read romance stories, I am willing to read all pairings, but I would really prefer the pairings listed in my member profile.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Extremely long stories with more than 60,000 words -unless I find it really interesting. Genres I do not like as much as others are; Horror, Tragedy and Angst. This notes I'm a more cheerful person XD. As for ratings, I'll take anything K through T. Nothing rated M, mostly because I normally don't read lemon stories, or stories that use too many bad words...
