Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I can beta-read for both simple grammar rules or sentence structure, but also story configuration or ideas. I'll beta-read to the best of my ability, and try to be as honest as I can when I return it. Keep in mind that it's easier to judge whether a character is in character if the story is friendship-based, humor, or adventure, and it will be harder to determine if the story is romance or horror. Not that I won't beta-read those or be overly critical, just keep in mind that I won't be as good a measure of that as, well, the characters themselves. The best piece of advice I have for writing is to just put yourself in a character's shoes and if you can do that, feel free to write whatever you want.

As far as grammar goes, accidental mistakes such as missed quotation marks or a "who" instead of "whom" I can do, complex sentence structure isn't really my thing.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Pinpointing simple grammar or spelling flops, finding areas of redundant word choice and suggesting a better way to say it, to a lower scale suggesting alternate endings. Also measuring a character's OOC-ness.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
It may take a bit longer to receive the finished product (aka the story beta-read) as I'm a HUGE procrastinator, trouble being brutally honest when it comes to editing, if there are redundancies I can point that out but may not know a better way to put it, I have trouble reading through long, dense paragraphs. Complex sentence structure is somewhat of a no-no.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Friendship, adventure, humor, hurt/comfort, parody, sci-fi
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Horror, romance (especially lemons) tragedy, western
