Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have been in an intense Creative Writing program for three years and have been enrolled in Honors English classes for just as long. I am a strong stickler for proper spelling, grammar, punctuation, and lack of redundancy. I promise that if you choose me as a beta-reader, I will not only correct any spelling/grammar errors, but will also give you advice on how to improve your writing style, dialogue, characterization, et cetera. I've beta-read for lots of Big Bang fics on Livejournal and am the beta for ChibiMonkey's Tangled fic, "Splitends."
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I pride myself in being able to spot and correct spelling mistakes. I'm also fairly good with grammatical things. One of my pet peeves is redundancy, so I'm all right at fixing that, too. When I write, I try to make the characters have distinctive and individual personalities, so I'm good at making sure of that.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As of now, owing to the fact that I have not done a huge amount of beta-reading, I am unaware of any flaws I may have. I would definitely like some feedback from those I beta-read for as to my performance. On occasion I have been known to be a thesaurus-writer - I look up similes for words that seem too simple or overused. Also, sometimes when I think up a phrase, I will use it again in a different story.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I enjoy lengthy stories, but only if they have worthwhile plots. I will beta-read oneshots, but prefer ongoing stories. I enjoy stories that do not needlessly kill off characters or put them through unnecessary traumas. I also like to read stories that have to do with fandoms I am knowledgeable of. If your story is a fanfiction for something I've never heard of, I will not read it until I have gotten a taste of the show, book series, movie, or what have you.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I dislike stories written in chatspeak. I dislike stories in which characters are extremely out of character. I dislike Twilight fanfiction. I dislike stories with excessive amounts of swearing.
