Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I like to think of myself as Mistress Grammar and I can be a bit brutal about it at times. I read fast, yet thoroughly. I hate spellcheck - I don't use it; a dictionary and google are good enough for me. I am not as brutal about changes I think you should make to the actual story; usually I will just suggest a different way to do it if I think it sounds weird and/or not clear enough. Anyone who seeks my beta-reading services should probablly be able to take constructive criticism at face value (not see it as a personal attack) and use it well.

I really dig witty dialogue, and adventure stories laced with humor more than anything, but I'm totally down for the romance, drama, and angst as well. I don't squick easily and I've got a pretty open mind.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My area of expertise is spelling and grammar, but I'm also a fast reader, a thorough reader, and honest. I also fancy myself a pretty good hand at dialogue.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I sometimes don't have a lot of tact when pointing out errors and I can be really stubborn when I think I'm right. I am a bit absent-minded at times and have a tendency to get distracted by things that bother me. Plot-holes may be missed if I am really into your story and the rest of it comes together cohesively enough.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer COMPLETED oneshots (of any length) and drabbles, but am willing to beta-read any length and incomplete fics.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anything anime - sorry, it's not a prejudice, it's just not a genre I'm familiar with in any of its various mediums. Other than that, I'm pretty much open to anything.
