Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello there!

I am Val. I am your typical writer, and like many, I strive to write for a living. I also wish to help others improve their services as a writer. If you think my stories are of good quality and wish to receive my critique on improving, then you are free to message me.

I do not disregard any writers. I will help anyone who needs the help. Having trouble with grammar/spelling? I will help you. Having trouble with literary devices? I will help you. Character development? Plot development? Imagery? Any of those, and I will help you. The only thing I ask of you is to be dedicated. If you are dedicated to your writing, then I WILL help you. I want you to stick around. I WANT you to want to improve. If you don't have any of these desired characteristics, then I will be unable to help you.

Unfortunately, as much as I wish to help all writers improve, I can not accept all requests. I will handpick from the requests I get, those writers who I think meet my requirements well, and I will work with them. If I do not pick you, please do not feel offended. I just don't have all the time in the world.

Capice? Good. That's all I've got to say.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I find I excel in both first and third person narrative. I excel in the use of balancing literary devices into all sorts of stories. I am also very good at making non-explicit sex scenes (if you need help with a sex scene, I'm the person to go to).

I find myself skilled at the area of character and plot development - I have always been skillful in making plots move forward at an appropriate pace. I can and will help you move your plots forward.

Oh, and grammar. I'm a Grammar Nazi, and cringe every time I see a word misspelled or bad grammar anywhere.

Gawrsh, so much... erm, well, why don't you just read my stories and see for yourself what you think I'm good at? :

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Haha, weaknesses... well, I'm too much of a perfectionist. So much, it takes forever to write something. And it all ends up coming crap. I don't let anyone see my WIPs and I fear critique, as I am a perfectionist.

I feel I am bad in the area of... - god, I hate talking about my weaknesses. Do I really have to do this? I do? Okay well - I'm bad in romance. o__x; Developing it. I still struggle with that. I can do the whole initial meetings of a love interest, and later on when they're all lovey dovey. But trying to develop from friendship or whatever to romance... yea, I still struggle.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Harry Potter!!!
Any stories with Sirius Black and Steven Stone in them!!!
But genre wise... I love mystery, romances, comedies, etc etc...
MATURE STORIES. I love them!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Yaoi or any kind of slash fics. Sorry, I refuse.
Fantasy (except magic thingies, but I can't stand winged angels or.. or... those kind of things. Harry Potter = good though)
Sci-Fi (Kill me)
