Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am an avid supporter of constructive criticism (ConCrit). If you are not one of those people who can deal with criticism, I suggest you find another beta reader. I am not the one to say "This story is good." and leave it at that. I will try to find a least one area of improvement. But ultimately though, it's your story and you are the one that makes the final decision in your stories. I try to be fair with my concrit, giving encouragement and positive feedback when appropriate.

Before you send me anything, it needs to be within guidelines. Most importantly, this includes spelling/grammar check! If it obviously looks like it was not spell/grammar-checked, I will not read it. Same with trolls. It is preferred (but not required) to have a complete chapter/story, to where you think its done.

If you plan on switching to another beta reader, please tell me. I assume you do not like your time to be wasted.

While I, nor anyone else is perfect, I will do my best.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths revolve around an importance on factual information. If there's something I don't know, I'll look it up. If there is something that doesn't seem realistic or just wouldn't happen in real life, I'll tell you. My specific strengths are current affairs, politics, aviation, guns, and the military. And if your story is set in Hawaii, look no further. Born and raised in the islands. I will tell you if your locations are off or if you're using the pidgin incorrectly.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Due to my highly imperfect schedule, my response time may be varied. I am also not good in romance and lemony scenes.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like to read more action/adventure stuff, military featured, and definitely aviation heavy but feel free to send me anything except listed below...
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not my cup of teas: YAOI/YURI, Parodies, Songfics, Stories in script form, and/or Character bashing. I am also not a huge fan of god characters.
