Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I enjoy correcting grammar, as nerdy as that may sound. I like fixing spelling and grammar errors, because I believe that bad grammar and spelling can totally derail what can be a wonderful story.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can fix spelling and grammar, and I pride myself on knowing when a character is in or out of character. I can also help with vocabulary issues, especially when phrases get repeated several times outside of dialogue (which is usually when I think it's acceptable, as it's more realistic).
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not very keen on deadlines-I sometimes go back to things several days to weeks later and find something I haven't spotted before and edit them. I'm no good at writing long epic stories either. And sometimes I can be very busy, so I'm not terribly consistent with deadlines, again.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta romance stories, and oneshots. I can do chapter stories when I have a lot of free time.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not too keen on horror and suspense. I'm rather shaky on how to write those.
