Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
When I was in my senior year of high school, we were supposed to edit three papers, and have our paper edited by three different people. I edited nine that day alone - not counting out-of-class editing. I pride myself on editing, with not only a talent in spelling and grammar, but also on how a story should *sound* or look. Yes, grammar is important, but, as we do in our everyday lives, grammar is often overridden. We don't talk like we're in the eighteen hundreds, but sometimes we write like that, and it doesn't fit.

If you want *me* to beta your work, please, don't write as if you are computer-dumb. Capitalize, people! I also am a peer, and I give advice, but don't treat me as if I am below you. I will drop you.

I'm generally a nice person, too - if you want a nice boost to the ego, pick me! LoL

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have good ideas. If there's a sentence you write, 'he looked at her,' I will most likely suggest, 'with a bated breath, he brought his eyes to her porcelain face.' I am also a nitpicker at punctuation. If you need help in either of those, I am definitely your girl!
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As a writer, I get carried away with romance and bring it in too early. As a beta-reader, I loooove to see romance in there, if only just a trace that slowly builds. If I keep finding the same mistake over and over (misspelled words, punctuation repeats, etc), I will complain, or just stop fixing them after telling you for the umpteenth time.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Romance, and I love reading a good action story - by action, I mean not overruled by action, with the ups and downs of a good story. Of course, I'm always up for a laugh - comedies are great.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Hm - I'll let you know when they cross my table.
