Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have past experience as a beta reader, so if there's anything you can expect from me it's that you can be sure that I know what I'm doing and will be able to do it in a very efficient manner. I'd like to think I'm quite friendly, too - rather than it feeling like a frigid editor-author relationship, I'll speak to you as if you were a friend and I'm happy if you do the same.

Admittedly, there are a couple of series that I am not quite in tune with anymore and if it's making sure things are completely canon then I may not be the one for you, but I'm an all-rounder when it comes to writing so I'd like to say I could be quite useful.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I think I am good at being very thoughtful with my work. I always like to make sure I do things as well as I possibly can, and with proof-reading (or Beta-ing) this is no exception. Being descriptive is one of the things I think I do best, to set the mood in a scene and also to describe a character. E.g. the appearance of the character, their personalities, etc. Also on the note of being descriptive, I can describe emotions quite well. I'm also fast at scanning for mistakes and picking them up in the work, (such as grammar and spelling) so I won't be taking ages and ages for just one paragraph.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
In my opinion, I'm not particularly good at heavy action scenes due to lack of experience as a writer, same with heavy emotional conveyance and horror. (That isn't to say I am incapable of any assistance, it is simply that if it is these in particular you seek, perhaps you should re-consider if I am the one for you.)
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm generally open with most genres, however I particularly love Romance and Comedy c: A strong, unique plotline is also loved, however don't let my preferences make you hesitate- I'm quite open.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Generally Yuri, and strong smut scenes. I don't feel that I possess the maturity as a writer to help someone with something such as that, sorry. Also, horror- I'm too cowardly, you see.
