Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I haven't beta-read for anyone else but myself before. So, if you'd like to see my editing, try out my published stories. So...I really can't say that I'd be better than any other beta. However, I am reliable as a reader, and as long as my schedule isn't absolutely unbearably crazy, I will have time for you, and I will read quickly.

I often pick out things that are not there. In fact, I may be mildly dyslexic, but I deal with it marvelously. For instance, I keep thinking "betareading" says "retarded" at first glance.

For spelling or minor grammar errors, I will change them straight in the text. For suggestions, I will have the text highlighted (so it is vital that you have microsoft word or something fairly capable) and a suggestion below.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
-I am the closest thing to a living thesaurus there is. I can help spice up any writing, or aid with word choice. -As an avid reader and writer, I know what style (as far as structure of writing) is easiest and most pleasing on the eyes, so I can help with paragraph structure and punctuation. -Being very picky, I pick up on smaller things some may not.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
-As is stated in my preferred works, if I do not know the story, I am not the strongest beta you can find. -I have ADD, so longer stories are not well suited for me, nor are songfictions.
-I do much of my editing late at night and into the morning, so I may not always be easy to contact, and I may make silly errors.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
-I prefer stories where I know the back story of the original work. If I haven't read it, or seen it, or what have you, I doubt I am the best choice for you.
-My fandoms are more or less listed in my preferences. If you have one of those, I'd love to see it, choose me!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Supernatural is one thing, but right out magic or witch craft is another. I will not touch Harry Potter and the like. I also prefer not to betaread for anime stories, but I shall take them as they come. I do reserve the right to reject any story I am uncomfortable betareading.
