Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
When I first get a chapter or story send to me, I'll read it from beginning to end. That way I know what is going on, and I'm not distracted by the story. Then I'll go back and actualy beta it. Expectations for authors? I expect authors to be serious about updating regularily. If you come across writers block, then please let me know. Also, I would like authors to be able to handle constructive criticism.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strength probably lies in flow of the story. If something doesn't make sense I let you know about it. Also, descriptivness; I'm good at that.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My worst weakness is grammar. My native tongue is not Enlish (although it has become my primary language for the past 8 years now), so I might still stumble on some of the gramatical rules; although most of the time I do pretty well. Commas are also a bit of a problem for me. I don't know the difference between too many commas, and not enough. xD
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anything is go. If you need a slash beta, I'm your girl. =) Other then that, I'm pretty much up for anything. I perferr to read stories from, catagories that I actually know and follow, since otherwise I wouldn't be much use to you.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't want to read depressing stories. Antyhing too angsty, or depressing, just isn't my cup of tea...at all. I'm not here to listen to your troubles, I'm here to beta your stories. Poems aren't really my thing either. If I have betaed for you before, I might look at your poem. But you can always ask. I'll be happy to look at the story, and decided afterwards (usually a day after sending).
