Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi, my name is Alex and I'm a student. I decided to become a beta-reader because every time I read a story and saw that there was a mistake I cringed. So I thought that instead of not doing anything I should probably offer my services. What should make you choose me instead of someone else? I don't know. The only thing I can tell you is that I will take time reading the stories that I have to beta, and that I will read them as many times as is necessary! I am also a very honest and direct person, if you're not comfortable with constructive criticism and me saying exactly what's on my mind, I'm probably not the person for you... Anyway, I hope to work with you soon. xoxo
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm pretty good with spelling and have been since I was little. If a word is not right, it kind of just stands out to me. I'm also quite good with grammar, the verbal tenses and all of that.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not so good with vocabulary and with expressions, seeing as I live in France and only speak English with my family. But if there's a word that I don't know, I promise I'll look it up!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm a huge tv and movie fan so if there are some stories that I would prefer to beta over others, it would have be the ones in those categories. I'm currently following Castle, Smash, Revenge, The Big C, Dexter, True Blood, Private Practice, The Client List, Californication and Scandal.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I like to have read/seen the characters involved in the story at least once otherwise I fear I'd just lose interest in the story and not pay fully attention. Also I don't particularly like poetry.
