Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Okay, I'm not even gonna lie...I really wanna do this! I've never really been too excited about this feature ever since it first came out, but now that I'm slowly but surely getting back into the swing of things, I wanna give it a shot. I really just want to help someone to make a great story, something they can really be proud of. I've looked over my own stories countless times and I know how it feels to look at a piece and go: "man, did I really submit this thing..?" It's not a good feeling, but that's one of the reasons I want to get in there and offer some assitance. All I'm really looking to do is help, I won't try to change a person's story just because I feel it'd be better some other way. That's not right, and it's not fair.

As far as my style, I would mainly just offer to help in any way possible. If I need to just check for grammar, proof reading, etc. I can do that, no problem. If someone is having trouble piecing together their plot, I'd be happy to offer suggestions and possibly even help the writer actually write through a particularly difficult part. I'm here to help in whatever way I can.

My expectations are pretty straightforward. I expect respect as I am giving respect to the person I'm helping. It's not required that I help, and so I don't need any rudeness when I'm essentially doing people a favor. That's basically it, I'm a pretty easygoing person so there shouldn't be any problems.

With that, I just want to say that I look forward to working with one of you that's reading this and that I hope I can help as much as I want to. Thanks for the time.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'd have to say that my number one strength is my maturity. I believe that everyone has a right to write what they want, about what they want, how they want, without being ridiculed or being told that they aren't good. I'm a pretty friendly guy all in all, so I'm easy to work with and my criticism is always constructive. I would always try my best to help a writer through any problems, whether it be writer's block or a sheer lack of confidence. I know what it takes to write good fiction and I know how to make anyone on this site a better writer, one way or the other. That's why I want to do this, I know I can help if I'm just given a chance.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As a betareader, I'd have to say my number one weakness is my prejudice. If I don't like a story, then chances are that I just won't be a part of it and that's not fair. I should be able to help someone write a better piece of fiction no matter what is involved. It's a problem I'm trying my hardest to overcome, but we all have our faults and we all know how hard it is to get past them.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
The only preference I really have would be a romance story. I like romance haha, it's really as simple as that. I'd be happy to help out with anything though, whether it be adventure, mystery, comedy, or whatever else might come to mind.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I do not do guy on guy stories. I'm sorry, but it's just not gonna happen. I understand that everyone has their own interests and...stuff, but I'm honestly incappable of enduring through a gay story. I just don't have it in me. I wouldn't mention this if I hadn't already had a bad expereince Betareading a guy on guy story before, so yeah, there's that. I'll be happy to help with anything else, just name it.
