Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am currently an English major getting my undergraduate degree with honours, minoring in political science. I have had the pleasure to participate in an advanced creative writing class, so I now have some "official" experience writing and critiquing creative writing, which I will put to good use.

As a beta-reader, anyone that desires to engage my services needs to understand that you are asking for my opinion. Therefore, I will be giving it to you. I will not be rude or condescending, but I will be blunt. If I think something is wrong or needs to be changed, I will not dance around the issue. No one has time for that.

Second, in order for me to help you grow as a writer, it will be much more effective if you give me your best work to critique. You shouldn't be giving me a bunch of word vomit.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm fairly strong with grammar and power. I like to find effective ways to word things as well as cutting/adding parts to make a passage more powerful. I'm also very gung ho about character development. Characters are what make a story, more than anything else.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'll be honest, I'm a terrible procrastinator. I do my best to keep on top of things, but sometimes it just doesn't work. In my own writing, I also find that I'm so eager to get to the exciting parts that I'll rush through important details, but I'm working on it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am all for all kinds of genres-action, adventure, romance, etc. Don't be afraid to bring out the guts and gore or cute romance, I love it all. I don't care about OC's, in fact I use them all the time. So if you're working on creating your own character, and ding your best not to make them Mary-Sue, I'm your girl.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Songfics are annoying, please don't send them to me. I'm also not the greatest fan of stories that have canon acting completely out of character. Some creative license is definitely ok, but if your Snape is skipping through a field of daisies and voluntarily wearing pink robes, it's best to find someone else.
