Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My friends regularly ask me to proof-read their work, and I enjoy and am good at it. I am doing English Literature for A level, and plan to continue the subject at University. I read a lot, and look for enjoyment in a story as well as good grammar and spelling.br /br /

If I beta for anyone, I would like them to accept any criticism I make, rather than get all defensive and cross. However, I do accept that others may feel different to me about the piece of work, so my opinion is not absolute.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am good at picking out spelling and grammar mistakes, and also when words are used in the wrong context, because I read a lot, so I am familiar with the ways books are set out, and I know what makes a story enjoyable.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I can be a bit picky, and other times I might be not vigilant enough. I do not have that much experience as a beta-reader.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta stories that I enjoy to read, such as romance, comedy, friendship or drama. However, I would be happy to beta just about anything.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would not beta anything that was quite violent (and I don't mean a punch in the face, I mean like torture and extreme painful death). Also, anything that is too sexual, as I don't enjoy these stories, especially if it is unnecessary.
