|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Let's see, my Beta Reading style is it? Well, I couldn't honestly tell you exactly what my "style" is, per say, but I suppose I can promise to be not too harsh. I certainly won't ignore the problems of a written piece of work, but my objective as a Beta is not to rewrite stories for authors, but to help guide, smooth, and correct rough drafts. You're all very welcome to give me a try, and I certainly hope that I will prove to be of service!

|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm particularly good at helping plotlines run smoothly. Whether you're looking to add in many nitty-gritty details, or need to gear your readers towards the big picture, I believe that I can be of service. I'm also fairly confident about my descriptive-writing skills, as well as bringing out real emotion in stories. My grammar skills are fairly decent, though I certainly hope that you don't expect me to become your personal spell-check. Furthermore, having written several myself, I'm patient enough to help Beta LONG stories of epic porportions. (ie. 25+ chapter stories).
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I will admit that I'm liable to become impatient. If you're the type of writer that might drop out of the story halfway, be sure to let me know. Being an author who's put several stories on hiatus in the past as well, I can very well understand where you're coming from, and I really don't mind as long as you give me the heads up.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I definitely prefer short, romantic stories over all else. However, this is not to say that I would be adverse to longer fanfictions. I'm sure that this is the same for all Beta Readers, but quite honestly, the quirkier and more unique the plot, the more interested I am in reading it. I'm a particular fan of heart-wrenching, dramatic stories, so if you're looking to write any, please send some my way!
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'll let everyone know right off the bat that I am not a fan of yaoi/yuri, shonen/shojo ai stories. Nor am I interested in anything too gory or... twisted. I think my parameters are fairly reasonable, and if for some reason you, as a writer, have taken offense, I apologize for offending you, and I would like to let you know that that is not my intention. It's simply not my cup of tea.
