Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a freshmen in college right now. Hopefully my education level is reflected in my writing and my critiquing skills. I do not enjoy writing nearly as much as I enjoy critiquing stories. I personally find it more interesting to read and review than to write. This does not limit me when it comes to writing ability. I consider myself an accomplished writer (I just don't really have the time nor motivation to write avidly.

Depending on my mood, I will either be a harsh critic, or else overly lenient. In general, I will look for glaring errors (such as spelling, grammar, etc) first. Then I will move onto the overall story, (checking if the flow of the story feels natural, and whether anything feels strained/rushed). After this, I will (if checking multiple chapters) check for consistency. Lastly, I will check for whether the characters are correctly portrayed. I allow for deviations when necessary, but dramatic out-of-character actions, unless previously stated, unless they are necessary for the progression of the story, will be frowned upon.

Another last bit: If you want me to betaread, please have something significant to show me. I am not (usually) interested in fledging ideas without a stable base.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are in clear, logical writing. I will clear up even the most muddied of stories, and shed some clarity on a poorly organized fanfiction. I also believe that I show genuine interest when it comes to proofreading papers. I will give direct, honest reviews, and I will suggest ways to improve your story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Occasionally I am far too lenient, and sometimes I let my emotions override my better judgment. If you write a very emotional story, I may feel a bit overwhelmed and say it is better than it actually is. Also, I am not as meticulous as I would like. I may also miss spelling and grammar errors that are strewn throughout the story.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I have very little preference when it comes to betareading; however I do enjoy reading things I am more familiar with.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
As stated in my "Preferred" section, I have very little preference. However, I will generally refuse to betaread excessively short stories, and ones that seem to lack any type of thought process. In other words, no crackfics, ridiculously outlandish pairings, bad self-inserts, etc.
