Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have had a history in the past of being a little forgetful, but from now on I am commited to getting your story to you as soon as possible. If I don't get it back to you in more than two weeks, come and yell at me. Please I mean it, that's unexceptable and I deserve to be yelled at.

I am mostly looking for small gramatical, and spelling errors, as well as any inconsistancies with the stories. I'm just a test reader. I will read through your story, and just see what I as a reader like and don't like. I like my beta-people to remember that this is there story and anything I make is merely a suggestion based on my personalities and tastes. As your story it's your final call on anything.

I'm pretty open, and I like the idea of a relationship of sort between myself, and you; we are working together. I think the best stuff can come out of both our efforts only if we understand each other and I understand what you are going for.

That brings me to my next thing: if you want me to work on your story, I would love for you to send me a personal message explaining your story and what you want from it; if you want any specific help, think you have a specific weak point you are looking for help on, it would be great if you can point it out. I will read through your propsal, and reply to you no matter what - again the two week yelling rule applies to this. If I accept your story, than it would be easiest to use the DocX funtion on this site, but I will go into the more with my responce with you.

I really see this site as a place to help writters grow, and I would love to help others, because I like help myself. So really, I am just here to help you, and really hope to hear from you.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Even though my writting is personally littered with it, I am actually pretty good at spotting grammer and spelling issues in other's stories. There is just something that makes it stand out when I don't know what it should say.

If I know the characters and the stories, which I should, I am pretty good at grasping when they stray from their set personalities which is important since being a fanfiction, it really puts people off when their favourite character does something they would never do.

When it comes to different era's, especially the late 50's early 60's and the turn of the century I am pretty good at spotting things that would happen at that time period, and what I don't know I am more than willing to look up to help you make you're story the best it can be.

Flow; I think I am pretty good at noticing when something just doesn't go right, or a paragraph or sentence seems too cluttered I am pretty good at spotting those points and highlighting them.

Also as a side note, I have been reading some teen writters advice books, so I do have kind of authors advice around that I am working with, and can maybe help you work with too. All about bettering our writting.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling really isnt' my strong suit. I can usually spot when it is wrong, but I can't always tell you the right way to spell it. I'm also only a growing writter myself, so I don't have all the answers. I really am just here to give advice and my opinion. Nothing I say it is the final, be all and end all, and you can tell me to go shove it if you really want.

I just want to help you, so ignore me, or listen, I don't really care as long as I can help in some way.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Umm... I'm pretty good with most things. I can't think of any spicific story I'd perfer over others right now.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not into reading male/male or female/female stories, or like brother/sister brother/brother... I just don't like reading that. I'm also not really into rape stories, or things like that and when I say the male/male female/female thing, I don't mean in a genrel term I mean really really deep into kind sex stuff, and that really goes with any story; I have been called a prude before (behind my back but still) I don't know if I'd say I'm that extreme, but I just have my comfort zones, and that isn't one of them, so I just wouln't be able to help you very much.
