Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader, I look forward to reading great fanfiction stories. My goal is to just help with the grammar, phrasing, vocabulary, and overall layout of the story in order to create an easy-to-read story. I like collaborating with people. If I butt heads with them creatively, that's fine, but I hope that they seriously considered my suggestions. Mostly, I like collaborating with people, who uses and rejects my suggestions. It's all about making the story better and learning from each other.

Qualifications: I am an experienced writer and editor. I freelance for magazines and websites. I've won a few contests or whatever.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have an extensive vocabulary, I proofread for my high school paper, and I try to suggest my ideas or inputs into the story as well. I am definitely considered as witty and snarky in my writing and in my life, though I've never mastered how to write about myself for a 'job' without being anything but cheesy and sincere. I 'specialize' in characterization and emotions.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My greatest weakness is definitely plotting. Long-term at least. I can help plot for maybe a few chapters or a full episode, maybe ideas for story lines but I'm not a long term planner. That's why it takes me forever to pump out my own stuff.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Any movies, television, or books stories. I am so flexible I should be a gymnast. Everything else sounds great though!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not very familiar with video games and comic books. But, I would be happy to do some research if necessary.
