Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I enjoy writing and would love to help others develop their own talents. I give both praise and criticism. I will not lie to you. If the piece is not ready to be posted I will tell you. A writer can not grow if the only thing they hear are false platitudes. You must be told what you need to work on if you are to correct any mistakes. br /br /br /

I enjoy seeing a young writer's talent grow before my very eyes. I read mainly Dukes of Hazzard and Sailor Moon FanFiction but am not opposed to reading and helping with other stories. I am of a firm belief that for fanfiction the writer should try to write as closely to the actual show as possible. One of my biggest pet peeves is a writer that takes far too many liberties in the way that established characters react and behave in the stories posted on this site. Plus, every writer should be able to not only picture WHAT a character would do in a given situation, but WHY they would do it as well. Learn to do that and your fan base will grow. br /br /br /

To sum it up, my belief on a Beta's job is this: A beta is more than just a pre-reader who tells you you're fantastic. They should be the ones who critique you the hardest and point out every flaw they can find so that the writer does not become embarrassed when that flaw is pointed out on the review board instead. In some ways it's harder to beta than it is to write the story. A beta should be like an editor, who tells you what you need to know, not what you want to hear.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have for years been able to catch errors in published works. Both in spelling as well as in plots. I also tend to be bluntly honest. With me, you'll never wonder if I like the story. If the story has places that have questions that need to be answered, I'll point it out so that you don't lose readers due to inconsistancies or confusion.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can sometimes be a bit legalistic. Even a bit bulldogish when I see something that needs to be corrected.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer Dukes but am open to other stories. Currently I also have a Sailor Moon story up and read a lot in OUAT.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not into Twilight or similar stories.
