Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm sorely tempted to write something that is hugely grammatically incorrect here.

I read much, much more than I write, and on a related note, spend a lot of time reading when I ought to be doing other things. The up side of that is that I have a very quick turnaround time on anything I beta.

I'm a firm believer in constructive criticism, and recognizing the good points as well as weaker ones, but I am not, in general, a cheerleader.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm quite good at reading for grammar and typos, plot continuity, and consistency of characterization, both within the story and relative to canon. I'm also familiar enough with math/science/etc. to comment on verisimilitude, if not always actual accuracy.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I don't do vivid description, heavy angst, or creative plot structures. I can read for whether they're comprehensible, but it is unlikely that I will make a suggestion that will improve any of those in a story.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I have a weakness for snappy or snarky humor and pre/new relationship romance.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
For the most part, the only stuff that I'd prefer not to read are the genres I've not ticked on the list.
