Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
First, I'm new to the idea of being a Beta, but since I'm spending many days reading fanfiction anyway I might as well do something productive in that time. Second, I'm a huge fan of fanfiction in general and think that the saying imitation is the highest form of flattery is extremely accurate. Third, I write the story "Look" that people actually seem to be reading, if you'd like to take a look at my writing style (I suppose that that would probably influence my Beta style). Fourth, I'm just here to help and I'll give you my opinions, what I think can be worked on, and leave it to you to chose whether to listen to me or not. Fifth, I'm an English major (getting my license in Secondary Education) in college right now (I'll be a senior this coming year), so I have some experience with writing and such.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
As I said, "Look" actually seems to be getting read, so I guess I have some ability at writing, which I personally think matters a lot when it comes to being a Beta. I don't know all the grammar/syntax rules, but I'm good at reading something and knowing whether its right or wrong. I can also help on story formatting and dialogue(helping with accents, diction, etc).
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm new at Beta'ing, so that in and of itself would be a weakness. I've never done this before, but I'm willing to give it a shot. As I said, I don't know all the rules, explicitly, so if you want a reason why something isn't right I might not be able to give you Strunk and White's explanation (though I do have a copy of "Elements of Style" so I suppose I could look some things up for you).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm not really picky.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm open to pretty much any type of story.
