Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm 33 years old and I've been writing short stories since 3rd grade. I took advanced English in high school and college. I love to read. My all-time favorite novel is Beauty by Robin McKinley. I believe that details can make or break a story. If you are serious about writing, I will do everything in my power to help you do your best. If there is a story in your head, get it out and share it with the world!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
You cannot embarrass me. You cannot offend me. Ask me ANYTHING. Sometimes you have to get outside your comfort zone to get a story done right.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have trouble with some AU fics. If you take a character too far from canon, you'd better have that character down perfect. I have seen it done, and done well, but it's tough.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I adore canon divergent fics, and all the what-ifs you can explore. I love fics that fill in missing scenes or episode gaps. I also like to learn more about side characters and sub plots.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I cannot stand 99% of High School AUs. Sorry.
