Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love reading other people's stories, and giving advice about grammar, spelling, and just the over all style of writing. I won't hold anything back, and I've been told (by writers who merely got my messages as reviews) that I can come off a little strong when it comes to telling you what needs to be fixed. Basically, I'll create a little list and pass it along to you. :) So you have to actually WANT constructive criticism if you're going to have me as a beta.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'd have to say that my greatest strength is sentence and story-flow: being able to look at sentences and tell you if they transition into the next sentences well, or if you need to find a way to bridge the gaping hole between them. I can also catch quite a few spelling and grammar errors (the basics); although no one is perfect... so I do make mistakes.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I miss mostly simple errors, though I'm compensating for that by re-reading everything people send me at least twice. That means that it may take me a little while to get the story back to you (I won't keep you waiting too long) but that the story will have all possible errors caught and corrected.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'll read/beta anything Harry Potter, Naruto, Criminal Minds, Lord of the Rings, and basically anything I know the story line to. :) If it's not on the list, but you want to ask anyway, just send me a PM and I'll see if I know it.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I won't read something that I don't know the basic storyline to, UNLESS you only want the grammar and spelling looked at. I also won't put myself so far out of my comfort zone that I can hardly focus on what the actual story is about. I flat out don't do rape - there's really no negotiating with that one.
