Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My name is Amy, and I have always enjoyed editing things for people. I love being able to take something that doesn't flow or sound quite right and make it work. The best examples of my editing are probably my own stories, since I edit them myself.

My turn-around time is probably 1-2 days per 1000 words. If my life is crazy and I think it may take longer, I will always let you know so you can decide if you still want my help.

Mostly, I want you to be comfortable with your own writing. I would never want to seem like I'm taking over your story. You can always make the final decision about how you want your writing to sound. My goals both as a writer and an editor are to develop better writing skills and help others do the same.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths include grammar, punctuation, word flow, spelling, etc. Anything that deals with the technical side of writing. I'm decent at rewording things to encourage a better flow or to make something more clear. Also, I'm very comfortable with Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew characterizations and making sure their motivations are in line with their characters.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
In my own writing, I occasionally get stuck on where to go next. I may not be the best for someone who needs a lot of direction for their plot.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love writing and reading romantic stories. I much prefer anything involving Nancy and Frank instead of Ned, but I like anything with some romantic tension :)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not really comfortable editing anything that is written in a form other than prose. I just don't feel qualified to deal with the differences in writing something like poetry. I don't mind M rated stories, but slash makes me uncomfortable.
