Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I pay attention to grammar almost too much. So if there is a problem there I can probably catch it. I reread so I can catch most typos. I do recommend that before sending your story to me that you proof read it. No one likes someone who is not willing to at least check it for silly spelling mistakes because obviously the computer checks it for us. I am helpful with character development but I do not like telling someone exactly what to do. As a writer it is your duty to be creative. I am fairly open to any kind of fanfiction to edit but I may decline if your story scares me ( I am not a horror person...). Other than that I am okay with anything.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, Grammar, Grammar. I am am wonderful at it. It is sort of a pet peeve of mine when people use improper grammar. I correct my friends frequently, it probably bothers them, but it is wonderful when editing. I am also very good at organization of stories and characters. I can get very into who my characters are. I like details but I will tell you if it is too much. Many people like to have some of the story left to their own imagination, so you don't have to tell us that the yellow mug is right next to the wintergreen mint box which is in front of the purple lava lamp. (This is my desk...) I am pretty good at spelling but if I am not sure about how something is spelled I can look it up easily. Organization is a strength of mine as well, mind you strictly in writing as my room is a complete mess. And my most favorite thing of all, JE PARLE FRANÇAIS! Well... a little.... I am currently finishing up my second year of French and will continue to take my third, the next school year (It's a college level class, I'm really excited). Next year I will be taking Pre AP English to prepare me for AP English the next year, which is also a college level course. Okay now I am bragging...
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I can miss little typos and things, but really who doesn't. And if I am writing and I haven't gotten much sleep I am only able to do a half decent job. So as long as I am fully rested (or have had my coffee) than I am good. But of course I can't read your mind. If you are writing in Paraguay than there is no way I am going to be able to telepathically communicate with you. Send me messages so we can talk about changes and characters or else the story won't meet it's full potential.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am a Harry Potter and Twilight nerd. So those would be preferred but again I am open to many things. I like romances and humor, but I also enjoy drama. I love John Green books (Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, and Paper Towns) and I also love the Great and Terrible Beauty series by Libba Bray. Sarah Dessen books are another love of mind and Narnia books... I have a wide selection of books on my top shelf so I am really an up with books sort of person.

I love the TV shows: Scrubs, House, Supernatural, Lost, Heroes, Veronica Mars, Castle (my new obsession), Friends and some others. I was also recently introduced to How I Met Your Mother, and as soon as I watch more I might become a beta for it as well.

I love movies so if you want me to Beta a movie give me the title and I will watch it and get back to you.
(I should probably use an new adjective, love has sort of lost it's meaning... that sounded profound.)

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Lord of the Rings, I love the movie but I could not get through reading the book. I will probably try again when I am older but because I have not read it, I would not be able to edit it to standards.
Anything overly horrific (I love scary movies and such but writing can always give you a more vivid image especially with an overactive imagination like mine).
Other than that I will at least give reading and betaing (new word...) a shot.

I will not read or edited or even glance at anything Meg Cabot inspired. I really cannot stand the Princess Diaries books. I once read a book by her about a girl who lied and I just can't take her. So not Meg Cabot, d'accord?
