Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
This field is quite difficult to fill as I have no idea what to say. I have never tried to beta a story before. It is different to correct mistakes, misspelling and wrong grammar of a few friends that I know for years. I already understand their style, but to do something like this? Never tied it. I think, that I signed up for this to revive and practice and to remind myself of the rules of language, because I didn't have to write for years. My style is mostly just correct grammar and perhaps make suggestions as what wording would sound better. I just hope to help ;).
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling. Definitely spelling. I just get so annoyed when I see misspelled word, it's unbelievable. Also the cohesion and coherency of the text.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
The biggest weakness of all? Punctuation. For the life of me, I still cannot figure where to put a comma, but I try ;).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I absolutely love romance with a little bit of intrigue thrown into the mix. Just saying :D. In reality, I love reading, and will read almost anything (see exception below), but romance is definitely a must. Humor is also something I cannot live without.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Well, I won't be any help with poetry, I cannot rhyme to save my life, and too much of violence isn't exactly what I'd call relaxing either so I try to avoid that type of stories.
