|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been on this site since 2004, so I consider myself fairly confident in the ways of fan fiction ;) (also, remember this if you ever feel the need to skim through my stories. The majority of them were written when I was about eleven years old...). I'm all about the quality; originality is hardly an issue as I'm reasonably sure the majority of stories incorporate some idea from another story. I'm also extraordinarily picky about the basics (convention wise!)-but we're all guilty of typos. I can attest to that especially, no matter how hard I proofread my own stories! Regardless, when it comes to proofreading stories I can guarantee that I will be fully into it every step of the way you need me. :)
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm a third-year English major so conventions and sentence flow are my ultimate strengths, and I'm extremely meticulous about continuity. I tend to point out mistakes when I proofread stories, almost subconsciously (because sometimes I don't even realize I do it until after I've said something), particularly when it comes to grammar, spelling, punctuation, all that fun stuff. I am nitpicky about everything that needs to be improved, which I hope is what you're looking for if you employ my services as a beta reader!
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I suppose my weakness is procrastination and sometimes I'm not as helpful as I should be when it comes to constructive criticism. But when I am, I find that maybe it is actually helpful? You tell me. :)
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm all for angst. I love poignant stories. I'm working towards other genres over romance and angst, but I wouldn't recommend asking me to beta for anything that isn't what I've set as preferences.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would say humor, horror, and supernatural. They're just not for me, I guess. As well, please note that I tend to stay as far away from "fluff" stories as often as I possibly can.
