Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello everyone! Before I start adding everything, I want to get out that I’m young. As in, not-even-in-high-school young. I’ve wanted to write ever since I was a little kid, and I try my best to fix my mistakes. I get good grades in English/grammar, so that’s got to mean something. I’m also a procrastinator, but only for my own stories. If you want me to beta something, chances are, I’ll be reading it right away. Though, sometimes I forget that I have messages or any docX’s in my inbox. If I don’t answer you quick enough, just email me, I’ll be sure to check it out then. My stories truly do suck, and that’s because I didn’t re-read and think the plot through all of the way. If you would like an example of my current writing (not yet posted), then PM or email me.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I’m good at spotting punctuation, grammar, and spelling mistakes. I’m particularly good with spelling, though I occasionally miss a word or two. I know the difference between there, their, and they’re, along with the words defiantly and definitely. (Yes, they’re two different words.) I sometimes use commas too much. I try my best not to, but you never know.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I’m not the best at splitting things into paragraphs. I’ll usually end the paragraphs too shortly, but *most* of the time, I don’t make them too long. I also have difficulty with details. I tend to use the same adjectives more than ten times in a paragraph. Though, I usually use an online thesaurus to solve this problem. I don’t have the largest vocabulary, but, as I said before, I can find meanings for a certain word on the internet. Sometimes spotting a character’s OOCness is hard for me, but it’s usually not a problem. Seeing as I’ve never kissed anyone, I don’t know the exact details of a kiss, so if you need help with make out scenes, I'm not your girl. I don't mind it in stories though ^_^
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer romance and AU stories, though I’ll beta anything. As almost anyone else does, I love to do humor fanfictions. Believe it or not, I like tragic/depressing/sad stories. They bring me tears, but it seems like they’re more heart-touching when they are that way. I have many shippings, which are on my profile. I’ll beta other shippings that aren’t listed, as long as they aren’t slash.br /br /

I LOVE reading about OC's, as long as they don't interfere with my favorite pairings. I like OC's for the Twilight wolves (not the ones that have already imprinted, of course), Alec, Iggy, Demetri, Draco, Tom Riddle Jr., Fred/George, and several others. If you have a story with an OC, I'll be happy to beta it :D

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don’t like slash. I'm not against gays and lesbians, and I think that they are some of the nicest people ever, but no. I will not do slash. Ever. I will NOT beta anything that involves sex. I’ll beta M-rated stories, but only if it’s rated that way for the language. Sexual jokes are also alright, but when the clothes start coming off, I can’t do it. (Though, there are some exceptions. Some, not many.) Sorry if this disappoints anyone.
