Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love reading, and writing. It's a huge passion. If someone asks me to beta read and I see that they have the same passion, then we'll get along just fine. But if you're just writing a story with no idea what to do or even if you'll ever update it again, then . . . nothing. Haha. I would love to help everyone, and I'd love to help anyone who needs my help. Good writing is good writing. As long as I like the story, then it'll be fine.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar is my strength. I'm really good at noticing punctuation and grammar mistakes. My own writing does have some grammar/punctuation mistakes though, but that's only because I usually don't reread my writing right after I submit it, I usually end up reading it a few months after I submit it, so that's why I have some when typing (I don't usually ever have mistakes when handwriting things). So I'm really good at spotting those types of mistakes.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to have a lot of detail in my writing sometimes, which goes against the rule of show not tell, but that's just how I write. Also, my writing might seem impersonal at times, but it's nothing that ever gets in the way of my writing.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Humor and romance mostly, but I'll do anything, like I said, good writing is good writing. I usually like to read fanfics for animes that I know the story line of. It'll be a bit harder for me if I've never even heard about the story line of the fanfic I beta, but I'll work through it.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not really into yaoi/shonen-ai/yuri or any of that stuff. I also really really hate Mary-Sues and Gary-(blank). They sort of make me want to throw up. They make a good story and good writing bad.
