Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love proofreading. As strange as it sounds, it is one of my favorite things to do. When I read someone's story, I usually mark all grammar and spelling errors then make notes about other things in the margins for word usage, sentence structure etc. When I have notes about the story content itself, I usually put them at the end. If you would like me to beta read your story, send me a message saying what kind of story it is and give a a brief description of the plot. If I am interested in reading your story, I will send you a message back telling you my email. Once I have done this, you can send your story (or chapter) to my email as a rich text file. If you can't take criticism, then don't even bother asking me to beta read for you. I will always give my honest opinion, both good and bad, so don't expect me to praise your story just to be nice.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, punctuation, spelling,creating moods (especially suspense) and sentence variety
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Plot development (but you're supposed to write the story anyway, not me, so this shouldn't be a problem. :))
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to read stories of things that I am familiar with. I feel that I can help with the story more if I am more familiar with the thing it is based off of.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
While the occasional romance story is ok, I typically hate reading love stories. One romance I really enjoyed was a Legend of Zelda fanfiction entitled "Link's Reward". I liked it because romance didn't overwhelm the story. If romance is not the only part of the plot, then I do not mind reading it. The only stories that I refuse to read are lemons. No dirty fan fiction, please.
