Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I look for spelling and grammar errors, and I will also point out sentences and the like that don't sound right, or are confusing.

You can contact me via email, my deviantART page, or Facebook (Pierce Thompson).

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a good eye for mistakes and words, as well as a large vocabulary for those who need a walking-talking thesaurus. I like to read and re-read what I have written, and that has gotten me into the habit of double-checking for errors.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
If I've read something many times, sometimes I scan/skim the document rather than really reading it, and it tends to cause me to overlook words that look correct but really are not (e.g., saying 'of' instead of 'or').
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anything's fine, really, but I prefer fandoms that I know (somewhat well). I won't list them all, that'd be too long a list, but I will tell you if I don't know the fandom.

Oh, and songfics? I will spellcheck lyrics, but I won't check the lyrics themselves (unless I know the song), so you'll have to be doubly sure on those; but they are fine as well.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I do most anything, except for fandoms I'm not familiar with.
