Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well I'm not entirely sure how to do this so I'll just answer how i think it should be done and hope that's right. I'm not even completely sure how this site works though i hope it will come with experience. What i expect from anyone who might want might help from anyone who would want my help as their beta reader.

1) Be able to accept constructive criticism with an open mind. Keep in mind that I'm not trying to insult you or your work, and I'm just trying to help.

2) If you don't like a change I would hope you would discuss it with me and not hold it in. Maybe I'm the one who made a mistake, after all I'm only human.

3) I would want you to be a consistent writer not just one who writes on a whim (yes that's the pot calling the kettle black, but I am much more devoted to helping others than myself)

and i think that's it! I hope that's right if you don't think it is contact me and let me know!

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good with all things grammatical, and spelling wise. My mother is a media specialist and I grew up with parents with very large vocabularies and who cracked a mean whip about speaking and writing in proper English. Also if I ever have a question mom's very good about answering, so with that in mind I should be able to make it pretty flawless in terms of those two things.

I'm also very good about keeping to the style of others and not, polluting it with my own. In this area i wasn't sure whether to put it in strength or weakness, because sometimes I'm overly cautious about making changes that might affect the story or the style behind it.

I'm also very good a working with deadlines. When it comes to myself I suck at getting homework in on time, but with group projects or with other people counting on me, I'm always there. It said this wouldn't be bragging, i feel like it is but this is a good couple of examples that should show you i can be counted on. When I was sick with the flu i went to school just so my group wouldn't have to give our presentation alone.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I suck at punctuation. I'm good with almost everything but commas, for some reason their proper use escapes me. I always put them where they're not needed or omit them where they are. I also tend to overlook it when I read. Spelling and grammar jump out at me but punctuation I have to look really hard for.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to read other character (OC) stories. These tend to appeal to me more then others though i like the others too. Other then that i really don't have a preference.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I really wouldn't like to read any cross overs. I just don't like them, because they get much too complicated. I also would prefer not to do any slash/femmeslash stories unless you really would like me to and send me a couple chapters in advance. It's not that i don't enjoy these stories it's just it takes a certain type of writer to really hold my attention with these types of stories, and it's all a matter of personal preference so please don't be offended if after you ask I decline.
