Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love to read. I used to spend all my days in class reading, and I still read in whatever spare moment I have. Problem is I read fast, so I end up with nothing to read. It's how I ended up on fanfiction.net in the first place. Unless it's a book by Sherrilyn Kenyon, I think I almost prefer to read these fanfictions to reading a book, because I can pick a different genre but still keep the same characters I love. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~I honestly don't know what my betareading style is. Didn't know there were styles, lol. I thought reading was reading...or maybe I'm just read weird. I find myself correcting the books I read, or thinking about how it would have sounded better if they'd phrased it this way or that way, because then it's less confusing. *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*The only thing I expect is not being left hanging. When I read a story, even if it's not something I really like, I want to finish it. I never start a story and not finish it. It might take me a while, but I always finish writing a story, even if it doesn't end up posted on here. So I don't care if it takes a while for you to finish a chapter, or whatever, as long as you do finish it.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I think I'm best at grammar. If it doesn't seem right on screen, or when I jot it down on paper. I try reading it aloud. Then I go back and try again if it doesn't sound right, but I guess that's how it should be since I'm an English major.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling. I have to look words up a lot to make sure I spell them right, but I try to memorize the spellings of the words after I've had to look them up. I do the same thing with words I don't know the meaning of.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I really don't prefer any type of story over the other.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
The only thing I really care about is the category. I won't beta read things that I don't have some knowledge of, because many authors of fanfics don't introduce their characters as well as is done in the book, anime, etc. They expect their readers to know, and I'm as guilty of that as anyone.
