Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello, I am Sarahhaley! I am trying to heighten my editing skills, and beta-ing is a good way to do so. I like reading stories that are still in early stages, where the author is open to suggestions, because I really like being a part of helping a good story get up and /

br /

I look at stories with a critical eye. I'm not afraid to say what I think, although I always use a constructive tone, and my suggestions are just suggestions. Although I might stress the importance of a few of my ideas, you don't really have to consider them. I can insert colored notes into the chapter, or I can make the changes by myself - whichever you prefer.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths include sentence structures, plot ideas, and story structures as a whole. I can easily catch spelling errors and grammatical mistakes. I'm also good at fixing repetitive words. Also, I love details and descriptions (when the story calls for it). I am also good at telling if a character is OOC.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can detect OOC-ness, but sometimes I don't know how to fix it. I tend to over-think when it comes to editing. I've also had a bad habit of picking at other's stories so much that they start to reflect my own personal writing style. But I'm working on that! I also get sad sometimes and have to take a break from editing, but if I'm right in the middle of editing a story I will try to stick it through until the end.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will edit both one-shots and chapter fics, but I'd prefer editing stories that aren't grand epics. If it's over 50,000 words, I may have to turn a request down. I will edit any genre - humor, romance, angst, whatever you've got!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't often read pairings that aren't cannon, and I am not well-versed with smut (it doesn't really interest my ace ass), but I'll still edit these things.
