Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader, I'd focus mainly on things like grammar, sentence-wording, missing or misplaced words, and flow-breaking words and phrases.

As for my expectations of anyone who needs my services, I'd appreciate it if there's at least some intelligence in the story. For instance, I'd be fine with helping someone who typed: "The man acidentaly wnet to the wrong store". There are mistakes, but it's still legible. I wouldn't be fine with: "Wen teh man acidentally Wnetj ton tHe store, he forgut he needed 2 pik Up MILK 4 HiS gURLFrenid". That's really it.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm best at editing first person stories, though that's not to say that my third-person editing skills aren't sharp. Grammar and the way sentences are worded are my strongest points. I also have a good eye for missing words (like "I to the shop".) Obviously, "went" should be there, but something like that is surprisingly easy to miss, and I see missing words in many otherwise great fics.

As for my own writing style, people tell me that I'm good at making people feel things, like I'm good at injecting emotion into my stories and characters. With that in mind, I could probably help people with that (if they ask for it, anyway. I wouldn't want to just start recommending things here and there when someone just needs something edited).

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling isn't the best thing I do, mainly because I rely on spell-check too much for my own writing. I can also be a pretty bad procrastinator sometimes (but not all the time, mind you).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm fine with most stories, but I enjoy reading (and, by extension, reviewing) romantic and/or horror-themed stories the most. I like action-y ones as well, and I'm totally fine with lemons, even yuri (f/f slash pairings, for those not in the know).
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Just M/M slash. However, I would read it if it wasn't all lemon. If it has a good (not just romantic) story and is written relatively well, I wouldn't be adverse to editing it.
