Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have read thousands of stories on this site, as well as written several of my own. I am good at catching spelling and grammar mistakes as well as minor plot errors. I will leave your story to you to guide as you wish, it is after all your story to begin with, but I can offer ideas if you wish. I would require would be that my screen name be included in an author's note somewhere in the chapter.

Some of the things that have to be taken into account before I’ll accept you as a beta reader:

* There is no need to send an angry e-mail to me if you do not like the chapter I have sent back to you. Just let me know what you don’t like and we can fix it.

* You are willing to listen and consider all aspects; it will improve your writing to hear constructive criticism, good or bad.

* If you lose interest or catch a bad case of writers block, let me know. Who knows, maybe we can come up with some new ideas. If I don’t hear from you for a couple of months I will might you lost interest in writing and will move on.

*If you don’t like something, let me know!

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am good at catching the 'little things' in the stories that may sometimes leave you confused from a readers point of view. I do strive to be open minded so don't be afraid to run ideas by me.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I do have a busy life so I may not get back to you that same day or even the next day, but I will try to respond as fast as a single mom to a toddler can.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
No slash, chapters over two thousand words, a verifiable plot, and a willingness to continue a story without abandonment. I do prefer the traditional coupling in stories such as Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione, Lina/Gourry, and Amelia/Zelgadis. That does not mean that I won't accept others if you have a good argument for them.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I do not write or beta slash, bad plotlines, super sad and depressing stories as it tends to short my computer out from my bawling. Super mushy romance, adult/student relations, and poetry tends to give me a brainfreeze as well. Whew, that was a rush...
