Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've made several stories since my registration into the site. I can say that I have acquired much experience from writers in the community; some of them maybe aspiring. When I beta-read fanfic works, the first few paragraphs are crucial if a fanfic is to catch my attention. When I see the first few paragraphs interesting, I read on until the end of the story. I always leave a review for every fanfic I read, stating there my personal insights on the story, parts of the story which can be improved, and errors that must be corrected so other readers will not be confused with the deviation of the basic facts. It's standard procedure to leave comments and criticisms not just to let a person down but also to motivate him or her more in improving for the future. You can always expect a friendly comment from me regardless if my reviews contain criticisms because I believe that flaming is an impolite way of criticizing. I never flame anyone who reviews my works or I reply to flame reviews, I take them as "power-ups" in creating more stories.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I grasp facts concisely. I can correct any discrepancies in the character's traits or personalities. For stories that require off-characterization, that can be arranged as an exception. I've written a lot of stories and left both criticisms and comments in a friendly manner to motivate the writer instead of discouraging him or her. I also excel in academics which is also crucial in writing stories especially in genres of science fiction.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Of course, I don't consider myself as a perfect person. I suck at grammar. In fact, some of my works are full of grammatical errors, at least that's what the readers say about my works. Regardless of this weakness, I can still compromise and improvise.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I really don't have any preference in beta-reading fanfics, considering that I read works of any genre as long as it catches my attention and sparks my curiosity. I prefer stories that are not too wordy but not too short. I prefer to read one-shot stories but stories with multiple chapters will do just fine.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I really don't like reading wordy stories because first of all, they make my eyes heavy and second, I can't read those kinds of stories in one go. It's not good for my eyes to stare at the computer screen for too long because of reading stories that are too long. I also can't stand cliff hangers or stories with dangling endings. It leaves the reader to think too much on what happened in the end.
