Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm not too sure as to what my style is (if I even have one), but I'm a reader as well as a writer. Twisting my perspective from reader-to-writer is a neat skill because I give advice from a reader's point of view and from an author's point of view. As stated below, I don't care what I'm reading about as long as it's nothing that's complete and utter fluff. As a beta-reader, I try my hardest to search for the littlest errors and confide in the author about said mistakes without sounding like a Literary Nazi.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a sharp eye for spelling and grammar (though I am better at spelling). I also note places where there needs to be improvement for detail. And while I know it's your story and you can do whatever you want to it, I do tend to inadvertently point out where phrases and words become annoyingly repetitive. That's where the thesaurus in my mind kicks in and I suggest what word/phrase might fit in place for something like "beautiful" and "having an epic time" and all that jazz.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not too good with dialogue. And - call it a blessing and a sin, whatever you want - I think my biggest weakness is the length of detail in my stories. I may write too much and I may write too little. It's just one of those things, I suppose.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm pretty flexible with story content-anything goes, as long as the rating isn't K or K+ (the latter of which can be excused, depending on if the story isn't all fluff). In layman's terms, I don't care what I'm beta-reading so long as it's a healthy length and deals with situations that can only be found in stories rated T or M. (Yes, that includes lemons.)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Nothing below K+, and even if you want me to betaread a K+ fanfiction, I'd have to know what it's about. I like fluff - I'm not completely heartless - but a lot of times, I can't stand stories that are all sugary-sweet with no bitterness. With that said, I prefer not to read stories for kiddies because I have no patience for it. At all.
