Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My expectations of authors: A willingness to understand critical reviews are not personal. Although they do hurt the ego, my reviews and suggestions are only to make a piece of work the best it can be. Good critics help make good writers great writers. And I am human enough to loose myself in a good piece of work.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am good at smoothing rough works. I am good with grammar, punctuation, summaries, and character motivation. I realize work check glosses over correctly spelled words, while the human eye is better at noticing incorrect word placement. I know the difference between a simile and a metaphor. I can offer solid suggestions for better flow. I am pretty good at summaries as well.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not good with canon if I am not familiar with a particular established story. If I do not know a particular story, I will make the author aware of this fact before offering my services.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to work on Rizzoli & Isles stories with female pairings.

I would rather receive documents at 10,000 words or less. Much more than 10,000 words is a bit of a work load for me, although I am willing to make exceptions for special circumstances.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not a prude. However, I will not review works with gratuitous immorality. I do not shy away from dark themes (self hurt, rape, incest, bondage, torture, etc.) AS LONG AS those issues are address in an artful way and are essential to the story. I will not waste my time on someones sick desires.
