Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader, I have a preferred style of staying on one person for their entire story; to help them out, give advice, encourage them to keep going, and to add in a suggestion or two. I'm not a mean person, but I'm not gonna sugar coat it and say that your work is perfect. No ones is- not even mine. But with a little work, elbow grease, and putting our brains together, I'm sure I could help you write a masterpiece. :3

Sorry to say it, I'm kinda a grammar Nazi. :D

I've taken at least two writer's workshop classes, and I'm currently enrolled in one as of now.

If anyone wishes for my services, I have a few guidelines I would like for you to follow:

-Unless your work is in M rating, please keep the language decent and sex out (M stories: please don't be smutty)
-Send me emails through my email for beta services -DO NOT PUT DOWN YOUR OWN WORK -Please be kind and courteous; I shall be too -Take constructive criticism maturely

I don't slander people's work, because it takes a lot of guts to go and post it online. I'm on my computer every single day of the year; though life has gotten slightly busier because of high school. Marching season is over, so I've devoted my time to my writing. If questions, ect. are sent to me, messages will be sent back to you within that very same night.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Places in which I can excel are the following:
-Romance between characters -Character traits (personality)
-Grammar -Sentence structure -Checking if you're typing in correct format (this was drilled into my brain)
-(For music oriented pieces) I can find any lyric to match your song if you so wish and fit it in so that it makes sense -Piece the story together -Giving good, constructive criticism(I call this the 'Sandwich Method')
-Writing a good, gory scene

I'm also very good (with a keen eye) on how to make a sentence flow smoothly. Transitioning is a trait I've been taught and excelled in.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can somewhat help you with these; but it might not be perfect (what story is?):
-Describing a scene/place (unless it's a season; I'm good with that)
-Description of character's looks -Battle scene fights -Sexual scenes (this is because it's kinda new to me; I guess it's a little awkward for me :o)
-Advice- sometimes I may say something, but it comes out so vague; that's usually when you have to choose for yourself :P
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm open to pretty much a lot of things. These, though, I could really help you out on:
-Romance -Mystery -Anything gory -Humor (though my humor is crude and sexual; I can make a decent pun every now and then)
-Hurt/Comfort -Friendship -Drama -Anything to do with Vampiric love (AND THIS IS NOT BECAUSE OF THE BOOK TWILIGHT)
-Bi Racial (though...most stories, the characters are the same race)

I could help you even if you choose to write a Shounen ai or a Yuri. But, please keep it classy and not smutty. I'm not out to reading adult fiction. It's gotta be a realistic reason why two same sex characters fall in love. (But I don't think I could help you with a sex scene, if you so choose to). Romance is what I've been studying for the past...year- maybe? I'm currently writing a mystery story of my own, so I could share some ideas.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
It's not that I wouldn't like these, but...they just aren't in my preference. Except for a few:
-Drama -Sci-Fi -Angst -Western (unless Romance or Action)
-Action (I'm still maturing in this writing, and I don't think I would be of any help)
-Yaoi (Simply because I refuse- even if the love is reasonable. It's gotta really win me over. Gotta pack a punch!)
-Anything with a Mary Sue or crack pairing (Unless your own character is a strong, main character)

I don't do these genre's because I don't like reading them on or off the computer screen. I wouldn't know much or what to help or advise you on. :(
