Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have been a serious writer for over three years (as of Summer 2012) and have worked with and attended several workshops with great writers (such as Alice Kuipers) I do editing with my writing group, and am looking to continue to work on revisions with other people, as it is mutually beneficial. Their work improves, I see things I need to work on in my own writing.

My critiquing style is someone blunt, but rather then saying "change this" I word my responses more like "Perhaps this would work better if you used a different word here..." I look for showing vs telling (though I don't always see telling as wrong), flowing of the writing, understandability, obvious spelling/grammar mistakes, speech tagging, punctuation of dialogue, pacing, tone, realistic dialogue, consistency of characterization...

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
From what is in my profile/bio, I'll pick my top three strengths in each

In Editing: Showing vs Telling, Pacing, Understandability

In Writing: Romance, Dialogue, Strong emotions

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Again "Top" three

In Editing: Finding small spelling mistakes, missing some "missing words", getting distracted by emotions if the chapter ends in tragedy

In Writing: Spelling, Action, Fight scenes

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Well, in regards to character's I love working with different people's interpretations of Severus Snape. Romance is my genre of specialty, though I am fine with others as well.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
In regards to editing, I'm quite comfortable with anything really.
