Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a recent college graduate with a degree in English, so I am always looking for the opportunity to read someone else's work. While I love writing, I feel that my own writing gets better when I have the chance to act as a betareader. I've been doing it since high school, in fact, it's how a friend and I made it through two years of math classes.

I'm more used to using paper and pen to critique, but recently I have discovered the "Track Changes..." feature in Microsoft Word. I like it.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm brutally honest. It's true in real life, and it's true here. With my background in college-level English, and my interest in reading, I'm able to bring a lot to a betareading position.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
If I don't like a story, it's hard for me to want to keep reading. And I'll tell you that I'm not interested. Brutal honesty is a boon and a bane in this sense.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm a fan of fantasy and stories that create a new world. I'm also fond of stories that build on the world we're in now (historical fiction, autobiography, etc).
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I like poetry, but it's hard for me to know how to critique it. Also, while teen stories are nice, I'm no longer a teen, and it's hard for them to keep my attention.
