Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I promise to be honest with my critique of your writing. I'm a voracious reader, and naturally, this has translated into my writing, so I'm influenced by little traits here and there.

I expect the author I'm helping to be patient, and to listen to my advice. It's totally fine if you disagree with me, but at least allow me to explain the reasoning behind a proposed change before you outright reject it.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at grammar and spelling, so I can help there. I prefer to work with lesbian fiction (purely because that's what I'm familiar with in my personal life). If I know the fandom well enough, I can help with characterization (making the characters true to their source), and pacing of the story. I can also help with sex scenes, to some extent (lesbian sex scenes, to be precise).
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to lose track of where longer stories have been, so I'm better off reviewing shorter stories. Also, I haven't written in a while, so I may be slightly rusty, but i think I'll be fine once I get into the flow of things.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm fine with any story placed in front of me, especially those whose fandoms I'm familiar with.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No stories featuring heterosexual or homosexual male sex, as I just don't have the experience needed in that area to feel comfortable critiquing it.
