Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well, I'm basically a very easy person to deal with. I have nothing against writers who have problems with spelling or grammar. After all, no one's perfect. I also have flaws, I'm not denying that. As for my beta-reading, I'm very critical but subtle. I usually beta-read for my friends and a couple of people I am acquainted with. If anyone wishes to have my beta-read their works, I'll be the most critical person I can be, but the writer must also remember that he is the most critical writer for his works. I am not the best, but I'll try my best for the good of the writer. "You are your own critic."
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very meticulous when it comes to my writing. But when it comes to checking my grammar and mistakes, I get really, really lazy. I can't read back my won work. That's why sometimes I delay beta-reading my works and have to go back a few times before really proofreading it. But that's just for my own work, that is. Honestly, my only skill when it comes to writing is that I am very good at exaggerating and redundancy. It's my specialty. I love to express things in their best grandeur. But sometimes, I just have go towards the dead end and make sure it sounds right. Hey, writing is a gift, but is also a skill to be developed.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I get really bored easily. I hate it when I have to deal with so much sugar-coated words/works that really needs to be rewritten. I am very complex, which means that sometimes I like something and then I don't. I like it but I don't like it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta-read stories that I know I will enjoy. It's those light-hearted stories. And those stories that are part of my favorites, like:Superman (movies), High School Musical, Step Up, She's the Man. Yes, light-hearted romantic comedies are my thing. A couple of Animes which are also light-hearted are welcome. I also accept special requests, although that depends on what the story is about.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No can do for cartoons, comics, games, and way too old for my generation movies, plus horror, for me. I'm young and I enjoy what my generation has to offer.
