Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Though a lot of author's dislike editing, it's something I thoroughly enjoy. Going back through anyone's work and making it shine is something I consider fulfilling.

That being said, when I beta read, I will mark spelling and grammatical errors, look for inconsistencies in tense or voice, and fact-check when I can. I'll keep a close eye on your plot, setting, characterization, and pace, as well as point out any plot-holes I catch.

I won't sugarcoat, meaning my honesty may come out a little biting to you. I'm not trying to hurt your feelings when I edit.

It may take me some time to finish beta-reading something; usually I edit over the weekends. I will not edit at all during test weeks, vacations, performance weeks, or hell-week (for anyone not familiar with theatre-terms, hell week is the week before opening)

I also refuse to edit too many stories at once - they prevent me from giving each story the attention it needs. Otherwise, though, I'll take pretty much anything and have a fun time with it.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm best with plots, sub-plots, and creative twists.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Most of the mistakes I make are grammatical. Occasionally some spelling errors will escape me, too, but otherwise I do my best to cover everything.

Also I'm not a strong romance writer. Whenever I write romance, it comes out as too bold or too underlying, though this is something I'm working on improving, and it shouldn't effect much beta-reader wise.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
My favorites - whether it be writing or editing - are fantasy-adventure, romance, and mysteries
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
While I will beta-read stories and plays I'm not familiar with, I won't fact-check them and will encourage you to find a beta-reader who can.
