Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Honestly, I just LOVE to read and seriously can read all day, everyday (practically do already) if possible. Also, I'm very picky about proper grammar and spelling. Reading anything that doesn't have proper grammar usage and spelling, annoys that crap out of me. It is definitely my biggest pet peeve. As for when it come s to editing a piece, I'll read it through once without making any corrections, just so that I get a good understanding of the plot and what's going on. Then I'll read it through again, looking only at the spelling, and re-read it once again looking for grammar errors. Then more often than not, I'll leave it alone for a couple hours before coming back to read it again, just to make sure that I've fixed everything.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm not sure what my strengths are. I know and understand all the rules to grammar, and as mentioned above, continuous improper grammar and/or spelling annoys me. It's so bad that if I'm reading a story with excessive bad grammar, I have a distinct urge to correct it. And when I'm in my 'writing groove' (been writing for a long time), I even go so far as correcting people around me as they talk.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As with anything, staring or working on it for too long, and you'll mess up or miss stuff. I'm only human, and this definitely applies to me. When I'm proofing my own stories, I will read it over a few times as I'm writing to check for stuff and then read it 5 more times when I'm done over the span of 2 days or so to allow time to rest from reading the same thing over and over and to help have maximum proper grammar usage.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I really enjoy reading Twilight (Emmett/Bella, Edward/Bella, and some Jasper/Bella), Keith, and Summerland (Bradin) stories in a range of genres. The complete list of my preferences is in my preferences page. =)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
As mentioned above, all my preferences are listed in my preferences page. But things that are definitely 'not my cup of tea' are anything sci-fi or too fantasy to where there is no 'truth' or logical reason behind it. I like stories that are fiction, but can still be believable and follow a realistic, and well thought out and accurate, time line.
