Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a very fast reader and am very serious about perfection. Unfortunately because I tend to read fast I might miss a sentence or two. I will not tolerate those who are timid about getting their story betad and if you would like me to beta your story be prepared for some constructive criticism that borders flaming. I get really frustrated when people ask for help and then get angry when someone tries to help them and they do not like what they did. I will not tolerate that. If you want your story to be good you should just take the suggestions like a man or woman. With that being said I tend to be very blunt and straight forward when it comes to how the story plot is. I do not sugarcoat anything so if your the type that can not take a lashing then I am not for you. Now if I do think the story plot is good then I will say so but do not expect me to start squealing and jumping up and down practically worshipping you. I tend to not show any emotion. Other than that I hope that I can make peoples' stories borderlining perfect.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am a punctuation fanatic. I cannot stand it when I find a comma that is missing or a quotation mark in the wrong place. I am also very good with paragraphs. Now most of you probably do not think that could be a strength but I am pretty sure that seven out of ten of you find it annoying or confusinng when there is absolutely no paragraphs or line breaks separating the story. So I can and will help with that. I am also good at grammar and noticing obvious spelling mistakes.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling big words. I am not very good when it comes to spelling. Yea I will notice if a word is obviously spelled wrong but that is about it. Also replacing words. I, unlike my mama, am not a walking thesaurus. I can not nor will I ever be as good as her but if it is a word I know and have used I most likely will be able to change it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will beta any book that deals with mythology, magic, romance, tragedy, and romance. I will also prefer to beta any yaoi or yuri. I am not that good at regular couples so-to-say. I also enjoy depressing stories that deal with murder, suicide, and rape/molest especially that of a minor do not ask me why that is just the way I am.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not ever beta any Harry Potter story. I am sorry but as a child my mother beat into my head that Harry Potter readers or watchers are letting the devil enter them and take over them. I know now that that is not true but I still can not do it. That and Twilight. Not to be rude but I find Twilight stupid and people who obsess over them seriously need to get a life.
