Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'd say I'm pretty good at this stuff: language is a particular knack of mine (and, English being my first, it also happens to be my best). I write a lot of papers for school, so I get plenty of editing practice. Not to mention the writing classes I'm subjected to as major requirements. I promise I know what I'm doing. br /br /

I'll accept mostly anything, if I'm up to it, that is, and if it's a topic I'm familiar with. If it's a request to skim over and check for grammar or spelling errors or if it's a request to fully analyze the story, I'll do it, but keep in mind that the more asked of me, the longer it will take. br /br /

I can tell you what's wrong, what's good, give suggestions, offer advice, and help you evolve as a writer and your writing style if you so choose.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, spelling, parallel structures, developing dynamic characters, being able to create a flow of words naturally. I'm very serious about this as well as dedicated to it and will act in such a manner.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can be stubborn sometimes and tend to be argumentative, but I usually act this way when it is called for. Writing wise, I am a felon of run-on sentences and fragments in favor of flow when both do not fit with the style of writing.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Shorter stories are very much more enjoyable than the ones that go on and on, despite how good it may be. Understand, I have a lot of patience but little time. As a child of morbidity and the grotesque, I especially take delight in any story that contains anything that the weak of heart may find difficult to read. This is not limited to gore, but I mean absolutely, a hundred percent depressing, or angry, violent stories. Anything with strong negative emotion is my forte. But happy, smiley stories are just as welcome, they just won't be enjoyed as much is all, ha ha.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
ROMANCE. Dear God, I can handle some angry sex but the mushy stuff? No. So no fluff, please. It's just too much for my evil heart to endure, unless you're intent on killing me. I don't at all mind if there is a main plot and there is a romance on the side, that's much different and fine with me. Also, pointless stuff. I don't mean I won't accept drabble, that's fine as long as it has some purpose, but I mean truly pointless. If you have to stop and ask yourself if it's pointless, then it is and don't bother. I hate to sound harsh but I'm just saving you the time in the long run.
