|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've always been a grammer freak, along with a spelling person, which is probably one of the reasons why I've never used a beta for any of my stories. Currently I'm willing to do pretty much anything, from proofing to being willing to reading a story and letting you know what needs more detail and such. I'll do pretty much anything at this point. I'm a writing major, and therefore have experience working on proofing other people's work.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammer. Spelling. Proofing in general. I always keep a open mind and am not excessively afraid of hurting someone's feeling to tell them what I think. Ultimately though I feel as though it's always the authors choice of where they want to go with their story not the beta's.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
There are times where I get so involved with what I'm working on for myself that I forget everything else that's going on outside of my stories. I've been known for forget deadlines or forget to finish proofing something that's on my screen/plate. I'm getting better at it (in other words I am making very good use of the iCal on my computer now), and I'm going to continue to work hard on making sure that anything submitted to me is proofed and completed before the author wants it bad.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am willing to proof anything. I like to keep an open mind and be able to read anything and everything that's out there.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Personally, just because of time constraints, I don't want to try to proof a completed story unless you give me a good amount of time to do it (if it has 20+ chapters in other words, please give me about a day or two per chapter, at least, and I'll submit them as I finish them).
