Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'll only beta-read quality work. If you write like a fifth grader don't expect me to waste my time trying to pick apart your garble. As a beta-reader I am here to assist you not to write for you; do not abuse my help by sending me half done fanfictions, and expecting me to complete them. I am a grammar nazi. I tend to really drill on characterization and plot development. I always take my precious time, and I loathe being rushed. I don't deal with rude people well. I do not like to waste my time with people who aren't going to attempt to be serious. I'd love to beta-read for someone who genuinely wishes to improve as a writer, and who doesn't mind a little harsh critique when its needed. As a person I'm kind enough and easy enough to get along with; which is completely beside the point because the point is that I always get the job done if I agree to do it. That is all.
