Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi!

I'm a university student with a fair amount of free time on my hands. I'm a prolific reader; it's my study, my hobby and my job! I'm happy to help you with all elements of your story - plot, characters, language etc. I'm very detail orientated and do plenty of thorough research about anything I'm writing or reading, I find it really adds to my stories and could add to yours too!br /br /br /

I'm very patient but can be brutally honest when it's called for /br /br /

I finished school recently and actually topped my grade for english and literature studies at the highest level, so I like to think i know what I'm doing. :)

The only thing I ask is that you do complete your story, I promise I will be on your back about it! (but in a friendly way!)br /br /br /

If I've listed it, then you can be sure I've read it/seen it and know it in detail. /br /br /

In the case of Lord of the Rings, I have read all of Tolkein's works and am familiar with the canon but AU is also fine with /br /br /

The only exception there is x-men and the Avengers. I love them dearly and know the movies inside out but I'm not all that familiar with the comic books.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Well, I'm studying languages (albeit mostly ancient ones) at university, so linguistics and grammer are my strong points so I will be able to help you refine the little things like syntax and sentance structure for manximum impact. I also work in a bookstore and a large part of my job involves proof-reading novels before they are published, so I'm fast and I've got a fair amount of experience.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'll freely admit I'm not a very good speller but that's what spell check is for! I'm not brilliant at creating my own plots for genres such as sci-fi and action but I can certainly help flesh yours out.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Not really, I'm forced to read a bit of everything for work so I'll happily read whatever style of story you're writing. Also, I will happily read slash, mpreg and unusual pairings.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not that I have anything against them, but I'd probably rather not beta pure smut. If there is sexual content as part of a story, happy to read that but not lemons for the sake of lemons.
