Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have been a beta reader on and off for about seven years. I am a big believer in good grammar and spelling and I will do my best to help you write the best story possible. I believe your story is an unpolished diamond and I want to help you turn it into a 10ct engagement ring :) I love polishing someone else's work to make it the best it can possibly be.

I am an easy-going person, and when I give you a suggestion I know it's just that, a suggestion. However, I do expect if you request my services that you not be surprised when you see plenty of red marks on your drafts. Please don't expect me to write your story for you. I'm here to help you grow as a writer, not to be your "mom" when it comes to writing. I believe the best way to improve your writing is with constructive criticism, so please take it as just that, CONSTRUCTIVE criticism.

I'm looking forward to working with you.

-Libby :)

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am a strong beta in terms of grammar and spelling, and for written descriptions of individual scenes, or vignettes. I love helping someone come up with the perfect adverb or adjective to complete the idea.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not as strong helping with general ideas, or themes. It's your story, I can be a sounding-board but I won't write your story for you.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
In general I prefer to help authors who already have a writing style down that they know works for them. I like most fanfictions and am generally willing to help out anyone who asks. Also, I'm not squeamish, bring on the adult stories!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I prefer not to beta for someone completely new to writing fanfiction, but I can help on a sort of "trial" basis. Also, if it's a fandom I'm not familiar with I don't feel I will be the best help if you need story ideas. If it's mostly spelling and grammar needed I'll do my best.
