Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am as critical as they come. I strive to help and edit with brutal honesty and constructive criticism. My hobbies include reading, near obsessively, and writing, almost as much. I'm also one of those editors that will tell you if you need to add something or take it out, which is a problem I have with a lot of beta's just in /

br /

Not critical enough!br /

(My beta's a boss, though...)br /

Also, I'll beta pretty much anything. Just ask, and I'll look up a character wiki and it'll all be good.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am a grammar Nazi. I will not let an error (unless the author so wishes) go unfixed. It burns my soul to see it. I'm very good at plot development and charactarization, and can generally find a plot hole with realitve ease. I also love difficult questions, twists, riddles, and, above all else, slipping something in that the reader perhaps won't notice. It's all good fun. As a beta reader, I feel that I am also obligated to give you my completely honest opinion. I do not lie, and I do not sugar-coat. While I'm not cruel about it, I am very foreward. I will not lie or spare your feelings. If you're going to put it up online, it should at least be able to get by some scrutiny on my part.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Poetry. Poetry is not nice to Sammy. I respect all y'all who can do it, but I'm personally an epic fail. I can help you derive a deeper meaning, and pick it apart. But that's it. I can't fix it for you. Sorry.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like romance-y things. I can't help it, as I've sworn off men, and have no social life otherwise. I'll beta just about anything. EXCEPT Pokemon porn. Just no. NO, no, no, no, no, NO!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
POETRY! DON'T GIVE IT TO ME!
