Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Where to start... I'm a complete grammar-freak who gets fired up if I see even one mistake in a story or even in a book. I'm like a walking encyclopedia, and I know how to spell very well. I think I would be a great betareader because I pay attention to detail and try to make sure that a story reaches its full potential. I enjoy writing and sharing ideas with people, and I have a very creative mind that can come in handy with the tough spots in a story.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm really good at correcting grammar, format, and spelling mistakes. My friend always says that she can see me as an English teacher in the future because of how much of her grammar I correct, and I believe that it can be a big strength on this site. Another strength of mine is that I love to read, and I usually don't easily get bored.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
One of my weaknesses is that I'm a very critical person. If I end up saying something rash, I'm very sorry, but sometimes bad grammar just drives me nuts and I get very agrivated by it. Another one is that I'm not very good with original characters if their characterization isn't prominent. If I can't tell the personality of a character, it makes it hard for me to understand them. I prefer OC's that are easy to predict, yet at the same time relatively unpredictable (if that makes any sense), and whose heads I can get inside of.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like to read and write serious stories, so I would probably do best betareading those. But I'm fine with betareading humor and darker stories as well, and I love suspense and adventure writing. I also adore romances, though not necessarily fluff, though fluff is welcome.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Types of stories I would not, and will not, read are more mature romances (it's one of my mom's rules, or else I'm going to be forbidden to use the site) and anything that could be considered REALLY wrong. I also can't stand unreasonable pairings, and I won't do stories for subjects I've never even heard of.
