Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well, let's see, I get good grades in English, so that should be a plus for those of you who are looking for a good Beta reader. Kids in school often come to me for editing on English papers because I'm such a grammar freak. I rarely ever misspell a word unless I don't know it, even then I have to look up the correct spelling. So you can come to me with a grammatical train wreck and here's the great thing, I will not cuss you out for it. I don't judge at all and I politely point out mistakes.

I would also like to add, since it has become sort of an issue as of late, that I will not turn away writing containing OCs. While I, myself don't particulary love or use them, I don't hate them with a fiery burning passion. My only issue is character development, with which I am certainly happy to help.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, spelling, transitions, word choice, dialogue and tenses. By word choice I mean I could give you advice or suggestions on a better way to word a certain sentence or phrase, so that it will be comprehensible to the reader.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Comma placement, I can sometimes slip up on where I should put a comma or where I should put a period and start a new /br /

Starting sentences with conjunctions. (and, but, or) Supposedly, it's grammatically incorrect to start a sentence with a conjunction, but I honestly think it depends on what you're writing, this little rule is especially flexible when it comes to dialogue, so I don't think people are too picky about it when it comes to prose, but I could be wrong.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm game for anything you throw at me. I'm no picky reader, but I will admit I do like my romance and humor.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Like I said, I will read anything you give me and I will do my best to help you make it as beautiful and readable as possible.
