Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
An avid reader, I am constantly assessing what I read without meaning to. I find it difficult to ignore obvious mistakes in grammar and spelling. There are quite a few fics where this hasn't mattered as much to me, due to the storyline being so engrossing. However, I am of the firm belief that if you're going to write something, you should give no one a reason to give up after the 100th mistake in chapter 10. br /

br /

I would read through the story/chapter first, point out anything that sticks out, and give notes on spelling, grammar and suggestions for sentence structure.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Making a piece flow, through word choices, alliteration and avoidance of the word 'said'.br /

br /

Good with grammar - for instance 'their', 'there' and 'they're'.br /

br /

Always trying to improve, willing to learn.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Too critical of what I write myself. Makes it difficult to get any of my stories off the ground.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Shorter ones, at first. Any rating is fine.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
If there's proper romance and storyline, that's fine. But nothing that is just smut for smut's sake.

Absolutely no underage sexual themes, please.
