Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love to read as much as I love to write, so throw anything at me and I'll give it an honest /

I like going through in Microsoft Word and adding margin comments, so I will try to approximate that approach through the DocX system. However, if you're comfortable giving me your email address so that I can send you a fully marked-up Word document, then go ahead and do /

I'm also a little bit snarky, and so that might come through a little bit in my commentary. Just remember that I'm here to /

One major point you should keep in mind: I use Ezn's writing guide as a reference when I do any beta reading (eznguide . neocities . org ). Yes, I understand that much of the guide is oriented toward writing My Little Pony fiction. However, the sections on Grammar, Punctuation, and Style are very informative, easy to read, and quite helpful, so I'd recommend taking a look at it if you haven't.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm great at grammar and spelling. I'm also good at story logic and construction, so I can point out plot holes and other general story issues.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I've been told in the past that I can come off as abrasive when beta-ing stories that need a lot of work. If you've got a really early draft of your chapter and you're receptive to constructive criticism, then feel free to send it my way. Otherwise, why are you even looking for a prereader?
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd rather you send me works that need little polish, for the reasons stated above. Like I said, I'm kinda snarky and when the writing isn't quite ready, I can come off as abrasive (although that is not my intent. Just because I say that something isn't working to help your story doesn't mean that you suck and should quit writing forever. Even if I say those exact words).
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Eh, I'm pretty much fine with anything. I won't really know unless I read it, so just send it my way!br /

I mean, unless it's some kind of bizarre torture porn scenario, in which case I'm out.
