Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
It's my nature to research a topic thoroughly if I am going to write on it. I look for continuity in the overall story line, clarity in scenes, and of course - grammar, syntax, and spelling are high on my list of priorities, br /br /

Important things I have learned over the years is that learning is a non-stop process. We don't ever reach a point where we can be honest and declare ourselves at perfection in what we do. Having said that, I am happy to offer my thoughts on things, and I will do so in a straightforward manner. I ask that if you choose me to Betaread for you, remember that I am offering criticism to help you improve something. I am not doing so to bring you /br /

Its also a very satisfying thing to read someone else's creative ideas. Its their voice, and I learn a lot from listening... I look forward to helping out in any way I can! Thanks!

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have good language skills. I develop scenes carefully, and I strive for consistency. I research concepts well before I write about them, too. I also am very aware of homonyms...to, too, two, for example...
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My greatest weakness is that when I am writing, I know exactly what I mean, and I forget my readers do not have an open portal to my mind. My betareader has had to ask on several occasions "where did this come from" or "what?". I am working on being more clear, and giving better explanation of plot development.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Bring it on!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not interested in beta-ing anything slash or with 'morally questionable' ideas, such as incest, rape, etc... that is just not my cup of tea. I am not judging anyone who writes on those ideas - I thank you for understanding.
