Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've never been called a beta-reader, but I have been called editor before! I'm an English major and a strong supporter of grammar. I'm sure to catch common mistakes such as your and you're, there, their, and they're, and it and it's. When I read things to edit them I always make sure make comments or corrections as much as possible because I know that's what I would like if I were asking someone to correct my writing. I would expect people who wished to acquire my services to be someone who was looking for a person that would give them constructive criticism so they could better their writing style. I don't expect people who are just looking for grammar corrections to request my services, though.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are correct spelling, correct grammar, sentence structure, and the ability to leave tons of comments on your work for you to work off of. I can catch tiny mistakes as well, for when I edit something I read the work at least three times to make sure I got everything.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness is commas. I'm certainly a comma person in my own writings, and when I read yours I might inflict the wrath of commas in my editing process. I'll do my hardest not to, but it might be something to deal with when asking my help.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I have a soft spot for romance genres. I'll always have time for that, but I also enjoy action, supernatural, adventure, fantasy, thriller, historical, and young adult genres as well.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would prefer not to betaread one-shots. I like longer stories to work with and to read, and when editing I'm also reading so I feel like I would be unsatisfied and uninterested in a shorter story.
