Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta reader I am a teacher who corrects grammar and spelling. Then the devil's advocate poking holes in the flaws of the work and a creative heart that asks questions to lead you down many untrod of roads.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am a slight grammar-nazi, with all the pros and cons that come with it. br /

br /

I am a creative person who reads and not only sees the authors world for what it is but the many branches of stories not taken. The other side of the coin, or what if one thing never happened?

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have many weaknesses. One in particular is my lack of internet, which causes limited time for submitting and reviewing. If I were to take on an author there would have to be an understanding of limitations, but I would make every effort to uphold my side. br /

br /

I am horrible at romance. Tragedy though is another story.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love stories that try to honor the authors intent with the plot and characters but throw a monkey wrench into the situation. Changing circumastances is interesting if kept in line with the original pieces intent. I am not a huge fan of adding extra characters. Sometimes for varieties sake they are good, but most of us don't live in any o the circumstances we are reading about so shouldn't put ourselves or our friends into them.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not a fan of profanity or explicit material. Both have their time and place but a good author doesn't need them. The animes, movies, books, and manga I frequent also do not have them and I see little point in adding them. (there are some rare exceptions in all things.)br /

br /

Any story that I read needs plot, character development and complete sentences. If they do not have the basics the author did not try and neither will I.
