Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I don't beat around to bush. I get right to the point when critiquing someone's beta-writing. I, personally, believe I am a competent writer and would be able to lend a helping hand to fellow aspiring authors out there. But also I hope that some of you will lend me a hand in turn. So send me a request and I'll give you my honest critique and I'll be nice about it so don't worry about me flaming you. I mainly critique story-lines but I'm also pretty good when it comes to giving advice on grammar, being descriptive, and a few other things.

My expectations for people I critique: Don't whine about whether or not you think my critique is fair. Just take what I have to say into consideration. I won't whine when you leave me a bad critique. Also, when you critique ME be polite and respectful because I will do the same for you. Don't be rude about your critique.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I believe I excel mainly at coming up with inventive and interesting stories. I'm also pretty good and being a descriptive writer but that isn't my particular strong suit. I feel my grammar is pretty good but there is always room for improvement there. it's terrible.

I'm good at critiquing plots, I can smell a good story when I see one. That doesn't make any sense but there you have it.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I ramble. I ramble A LOT and I usually write in this gaudy Tolkien style that sounds extremely snobby and pretentious.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will only bother reading stories that are about a show/movie/book/ that I have seen and have a particular interest in. I'll do all genres but Romance, mystery, and comedies are my favorites especially if they're combined into one story. My favorite topics are stories about: Higurashi; Lucky Star; and Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya; so I'll usually be happy to read a beta about any of those
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will read all genres EXCEPT tragedies. (I like happy endings) I will not read anything that depresses me 'cuz when I get into a funk I REALLY get into a funk.
