Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
First of all, if you don't have Private Messaging enabled, I cannot contact you back!

Anyways, my pen name is AnnieJean Doyle, which is my first and middle name switched and changed slightly.

I like to read and write fiction for fun. I am my no means a professional. My level of writing is at a basic college level. However my mother has a degree in English, and I hang out with English teachers on a regular basis, so I've been around proper grammar my whole life. I know a little German to boot.

I love to take daydreams and/or real life events/people and turn them into stories. It's a way to get all of the running thoughts out of my mind and onto paper to relieve stress. Repeat topics include meteorology, college, my ex-boyfriend, my shetland sheepdogs, and others in my life.

About myself (the things that influence my writing):
I am a senior college student double majoring in Meteorology & Hydrology.
I own four shetland sheepdogs, all of which I have trained and shown at dog shows.
My ex-boyfriend Kevin remains a good friend of mine. He often shows up as the rotten ex-bf under a different name.
Kevin has given me a lot of drama in my life, so I often try to capture it on paper. Another really good friend of mine is Lorna. She oftem shows up under a different name. I live in Minnesota, USA. Schools that I have attended and places I have lived will show up as real places. I am a depression sufferer. I tend to write about deep feeling of lonelines, worthlessness, and hopes of romance.

Anyways, I like to read a lot of different things, so go ahead and send things my way!

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My background in science allows me to accurately access the validity of science in your story (though I'm not an expert in biological sciences).
I'm picky about grammar and spelling. I will find mistakes pretty easily. If I feel something's missing from your story (not enough details, etc), I'll tell you. I don't think a story is wonderful if I can't read it and get an accurate picture in my mind.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I don't have any sort of English degree; I only have the knowledge of an average college graduate.
I only know basic German and grammar rules, so I can't accurately critique an entire piece in German. If there's a small section in your story, however, that I should be able to handle.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love fairy tale romance! I like action, humor and mystery, though these I may not be able to critique well (especially humor; I'm not very good at it)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not a big scary, horror, thriller fan. Don't really like poetry. If it contains homosexual romance, I will probaby barf all over my keyboard, so I don't want to read that either.
