Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am very picky about grammar and style. For me, it's important that a piece of writing has a good rhythm and it flows well as you read it. I strongly advocate for the use of proper spacing. I don't like to read super sexy stuff. If the topic is skimmed over/ mentioned, that's fine, but I don't like to read a description of the act. Logic is something I'm always looking for, things have to make sense within the context of the story. (unless something is purposely made confusing) I am very good at making sure people stick to their proper tenses.br /br /br /

I am very detailed in my editing, and may come across as harsh, though I try not to.br /

I like GOOD, intelligent, witty, thoughtful stuff.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Style and rhythm. Tenses. I am good at taking an awkward sentence and making it sound nice and pretty.br /br /br /

I have a very similar mind to that of the BBC's Sherlock Holmes, so if you need someone to help you with his thought processes and how he speaks, acts, feels, I can help!

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I think I can get lost on tangents sometimes, and therefor I may be apt to not notice them in a story. I have a hard time with cliches, and things that I think are cliche but aren't. I'm not sure that I'm very good at editing a work in a style I don't like. br /br /br /

Consistency. I come and go on the computer, sometimes I don't go online for like, 5 days or so. But I'd let you know if that were to happen.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like not too mushy ones. I'm best with HP, Marvel universe, Doctor Who, 1st book in the Hunger Games series, Tamora Pierce books, and most fantasy and sci-fi, really. Sherlock (BBC), TBBT, Community, um. I like clever witty humour. In fact I LOVE it. Intelligent humour and accurate facts.br /

br /

Preferably over 10k words, though really I like over 20.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Sexy stuff. Crack fics, slash. I DO NOT DO anime. EVER. Or manga. Or video games. or card games.
