Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I enjoy seeing writers meet their literary goals and I would enjoy being a part of that. I strive to maintain the writer's original writing style as much as possible and offer support via critique and suggestions on how to better improve your writing. I do expect some effort to be made on the writer's part, however, to provide a clean, proofread document before sending it my way. I can understand needing some help in completing scenes, but I do not want to be the one to write your story for you.

I scan documents for correct punctuation and grammar, in addition to ensuring that the flow of the story is appropriate. If it is a fandom that I am particularly familiar with I will also provide suggestions on what I thought of the plot and story. You do not have to take all or any of my advice, however. At the end of the day it is your story, and yours to do as you deem fit.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Clear, concise storytelling with captivating dialogue and ample amounts of description. I feel it is important to strike a balance between dialogue and description, and it takes very little to get fixated on one over the other. A strong vocabulary is also greatly important to me. Above all, strong, accurate characters that convey emotions are perhaps the most essential to me in a story. Without them, there is little that separates a story from everyone else's work.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not particularly good at writing action sequences. I have written a few, but I am not pleased with their outcome and feel that I have room for improvement in this area. I am also not very good at writing in second person or present-tense.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Stories that are character-driven and show a fair amount of potential. I love compelling plots and sometimes AUs. Comedy is fantastic, but I love a good adventure and romance in like. In sum, I am pretty open to new ideas, provided that they're fresh and not another copy of some old idea written about 100 different ways.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Mature content, yaoi or yuri (though I may beta some depending on the context), and high school scenarios (or at least most of them). If you are unsure as to whether your story falls into this category, feel free to shoot me a PM with a link to your story for me to check out. I'll see if it's up my alley or not.
