Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a stickler for grammar and proper spelling. I'm also a big fan of natural sounding dialogue and will tell you if it sounds stilted.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm an Ivy League English major who has won numerous journalism awards. What more do you want?
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
If I don't like a story I tend to skim. Blame it on the undiagnosed ADD that I probably have.

I'm also brutally honest. I'll tell you flat out if your story blows.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anything, really.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I really dislike relationships that go horribly against cannon.

Examples: A love story involving that guy that Rory meets on the campaign trail? Fine. We've all seem Rory date random guys she meets.

Rory suddenly falling hopelessly in love with Luke (and vice versa)? NO. Emphatically. That's just creepy.

I also dislike slash. Speed and Eric? Horatio and Eric? Ryan and Eric (Quite the man-whore, our Eric. Or so writers seem to think.) Never happened and I don't want to read about it.
