Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Alrighty then, here are my none-too-original reasons for wanting to beta. I'm a lazy procrastinator, I'll tell you now. I have plans, sure but that doesn't mean I'll ever get around to them without motivation. And - bam! - that’s where this comes in. I figure that if I can beta, I can post my own stuff, because damnit, I need to post. So here’s the deal. I'm on every day, or every other day, which is when I'll be checking and, hopefully, posting. I've already taken a two-month hiatus - school and work are not the best places for ones imagination to grow, you know - from this site, and I'm afraid that with out an anchoring commitment, I may never come back. I've wanted to become a beta since I joined, and now’s the time to do it.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My friends say I'm pretty good at spotting grammar, punctuation and format errors, as well as little things like which 'there' goes where, etc. I guess I'm ok with paragraph spacing, and I have a decent eye for word repetition, as well as over use and under use of important nouns and verbs and so on.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a really big problem with plots. I'll have an idea, and I'll know how I want it to start and end, but the middle is blank. And I procrastinate and tweak alot. Everything has to be just so for me to release it. I hate using one word more than twice in a paragraph, so my knowledge of synonyms is pretty good. I'm also a major critic, so if something is given to me for beta-ing, it might not come back for a few days, a week at most. And I have horrific grammar without spell check.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like romance, seeing as I read it more often. But I like action and comedy too, though I'm prone to writing - and reading - angst of all types. I'm pretty open, I suppose. I don't think I'd turn away from anything, though I am pretty particular about pairings. My favorites are posted on my profile, if you ever want to take a look there.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not uptight about what I read, so I can't imagine anything I wouldn't mind beta-ing or reading. Nothing really repulses me, I guess, and I can't imagine turning away from good writing.
