Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta reader, I do not plan on altering the plot-line of a story, or scenes, unless asked. My primary goal as a beta reader would be to make sure the grammatical, punctuation, sentence structure and spelling are correct. Then, I would look at character actions/dialogue, and so on. While I cannot say what my beta-reading style is (never beta-ed for anybody before), I will say that my goal is to make sure that whatever is in your head is translated effectively so that your readers will understand. br /br /

After all, if people get hung-up on your sentence structures, or your improper punctuation, then how can they see what's going on in your head?

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am good at grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure (the "technical" side of writing, if you will). However, within my writing, I take pride on my dialogue because that has always been my stronger suit throughout my writing hobby.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to get representative with some word usage. Basically, if I use a word, then I will use it over-and-over again in the same paragraph/page. These are my first edits to fix, and it's something I always keep in mind, but it does tend to slip out. Also, I do use a lot of ellipses (...), dashes (-), parentheses, and adverbs. While I don't really consider it too much of a problem, I know there are people who do not prefer having those as a large quantity in their stories.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't truly have a preference. If the story is good, and it has a lot of potential, then I can do it. That said, my focus is on teaching the writer who asks for my help so that their skills are improved for the better; essentially, stories don't matter, but I'd prefer a writer who's willing to learn a bit. :)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am honestly open to anything, so long as it means making sure your story is to the best quality. However, for the sake of fanfiction, I do prefer to stick to my fandoms because those are what I know best (for context reasons). This does not mean ships, necessarily, though the same ships that I do would work best (again, the context thing).
