Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a very open-minded person, and will gladly accept many story elements that other betas will not.

I'm very constructive about my criticism, and won't get angry or impatient if you make a lot of mistakes. I also won't get upset if we disagree on something. I might ask for an explanation, but I know that the writer is the boss - as a betareader, I will make suggestions, but I understand that ultimately, it is the writer's decision on which of my suggestions to take and which to not.

I can handle a fairly large workload, and don't mind working on more than one thing.

The only thing I expect from you, the writer, is professionalism. If I'm going too slow, not doing a good job, or if for any other reason you are dissatisfied with my service, please tell me in a calm way. I don't want to be yelled at or insulted.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at spelling, punctuation, grammar - all the technical stuff. One of my particular specialties is structure, from sentence level to paragraph. I also have a wide vocabulary, and I can also work on a deadline (as long as I'm given one).
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness as a writer is extended plotlines - I can't write anything longer than a chapter or two, but that shouldn't affect my beta capabilities (I can betaread long stories even if I can't write them). I have some experience as a peer reviewes, editer, and betareader.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am open to any type of story - yaoi, yuri, canon, non-canon, rated K-M, one-shots, multi-chaptered, and whatever else you can think of to throw at me. My preferred category is Anime and Harry Potter.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
You know, I kept typing things in and deleting them. I'm willing to give any story a try, and will let you know if I can't handle it, for whatever reason. I'm a little wary of fandoms that I'm not familiar with, but if you want a strictly technical betareader, I'll give any fandom try.
