Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I tend to evaluatetwo different aspects of the story: the validity of a plot and the way it's written, so I will give you separate opinions on those.I also tend to be very direct, so I wan't gild the pill. But I won't do that for personal reasons, just because that's what I would like beta readers to do with my stories. So if I think that your plot has got potential but it's written poorly I will tell you and vice versa and of course I'll do the same even if everything is fine.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I've got something for plot holes, cause I am very careful with plots so I guess that's why it comes easy.As I am gifted with avery good memory I usually can also spots mistakes that you may have made because you didn't remember something from the fandom (or mabe that's because I tend to be obsessed about some fandoms lol). When it comes to grammar I can be a bit obsessive, but yes, I am good as spotting grammar mistakes as well, even if sometimesI might not notice something in english, as it's my second language.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling. I am dreadful at spelling both as a reader and as a writer. When I write I often make typos and when I read I tend to correct spelling mistakes in my head, so I usually don't notice them. Also, I'm not that good with punctuation, I usually nee to read something three or four times before I can notice how punctuation should be changed.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like humor/romance stories more than everything I also like stories set in the past. Those are definitely my favourites. I do like also adventure stories, misterious ones and the ones about normal life, if there's anything such as a normal life. Occasionally I read also horror stories, but it's very seldom.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't like cheesy romances (the one with a lot of drama and full of promises of undying love and self. sacrifice etc etc), they usually cause be diabetes. Also, I don't like crossovers so I won't read them and I would never read any Twilight-related story. I am sorry, I just don't like the fandom and when I read something about a fandom I don't like I always end up loathing the story, doesn't matter how good it is, so I would be a terrible judge, believe me.
