Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I just enjoy reading and writing, as well as the collaborative work that can be involved in it. I was an English major in college, and gained a love of dissecting and discussing whatever we were reading at the time. I don't want to destroy anyone's voice, so I will most likely make suggestions and highlight any changes I think might help, but will not be offended if the author chooses to leave it as originally written.

I do have small children, so I would appreciate adequate time to receive and edit the work. I'll check my mail daily, but would like 24-48 hours at least to read and process shorter work (2000 words or less). Longer items will need more time for me to feel like I've done a good job. If you need something faster, please check with me and I'll try to work with you.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I do well with grammar-my college professors pounded it into me pretty often, and if I'm not sure I've got the tools to look it up.

Characterization is also a strong suit in my selected areas, having seen most if not all of the TV episodes (owning a good portion of the series as well) and read the selected books at least two or three times (Pride and Prejudice is by far stronger-I wrote my thesis on this novel and have read it through at least five times, with more attention to certain passages).

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Very complex stories can often be difficult for me to keep track of each detail-I'll often over-analyze in an attempt to make something work.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I definitely prefer relationship stories over procedural ones.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Please no character death stories-I feel like I know these people and I'm likely to get stuck on that aspect of the story and be of no use whatsoever. Please also limit foul language and no explicit scenes, either.
