Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm very strict with spelling and grammar. Usually, I read chapters 3 times. The first is to get a general feel for the author's writing style and what he/she wants to say with the chapter. The second is to correct spelling and grammatical errors. The third is to correct errors in punctuation. I do all my corrections using red font or, if it's a punctuation error, I leave little red notes to explain the correction.

With regard to story flow, I try to throw ideas around with the author but I never tell him/her what to write. I believe that each writer has his/her own style and I do my best to help develop it rather than turn it into my own.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling and grammar are my strongest points as a beta reader. I'm very ruthless and check every single word, sentence construction and punctuation the author has written.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm a bit slow as a beta reader because I read the story several times and make sure I don't miss anything.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Definitely romance. But that's just a preferrence. I can beta read most categories. For ParaKiss fics, I only read GeorgexYukari ones. For Rayearth, I prefer ClefxUmi. For Kyou Kara Maou, YuurixWolfram. For Sailormoon, MamoruxUsagi. Of course, I can make exceptions if you really need the help. Just give me a heads up.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Yaoi and yuri. I do enjoy some pairings but only a very select few. You'll have to ask me first before you ask me to beta read these types of stories for you, just to make sure I don't object to the pairing.
