Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta reader, I am more of a reader - but I'm a good sounding board for ideas. I can pick out spelling mistakes and sentences that sound funny, but I'm not going to fix them for you. If you come to me, expect to interact with me a lot. I'm on my messengers a lot and check my e-mails frequently, so if you're looking for someone who's willing to help you expand your story, continue and deepen/develop your plot, help you find twists and all that jazz, I'm the person to talk to.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are that I'm open and willing to read almost anything. I can pick out spelling mistakes almost instantly and sentences that sound a wee bit strange. I'm also full of ideas, and my imagination forms things when you bounce your ideas at me and I'll bounce things back at you and possibly develop your story further than you might originally have thought. I'm also friendly and approachable - I'm not going to bite your head off.

Long story short: strengths are spelling, grammar (excluding tenses), plot, character and setting development, and ideas. Lots and lots of ideas.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weaknesses are that I rarely finish anything, but that is mainly as a writer. I also have a tendency to use the wrong tenses - but my grammar in other areas makes up for it. I also have a short attention span, but I find that if your story doesn't grab my attention, I'll either edit it to make it do so, or I'll beta it in short bursts.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd prefer young adult and fantasy stories - I'm not much of a slash reader, but I'm not against it either. A friend of mine is very big on slash, so if it turns out that I do wind up beta-ing a slash story, I'll ask for her input too. I'm also not good with poetry - please just fiction.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I won't beta-read poetry.
