I first got in to being a Beta reader when I was very young. I started out doing it for a few friends who, thanks to me, had recently discovered fan-fiction. I wouldn't say I'm obsessively neat when it comes to writing, but if there are any plot errors or poor characterization I wont be afraid to tell you that, and I certainly won't hesitate to fix it.

If you would like to see my previous work merely contact me through email or privet message and I can forward you links to other sites and people whom I have beta'd for.
If you would like my help merely email me with information about your story, I prefer stories to come as Word documents or rtf files, but I'll contact you with that sort of information when you ask for help. I don't expect you to agree with all of my advice, after all it is your story, but I hope you will take it in to consideration.
Also, anyone I beta for I would like to ask the permission to put you up on my blog as examples of some of the types of stories I've beta'd for.
P.s I am more than happy to read/watch any manga, anime and/or book if I haven't already and you would like me to beta for it.
