Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a young guy who has just finished an exciting degree at Uni with a bit of spare time and an interesting background I don't feel inclined to mention here. Let's just say I know violence in all it's forms, at every level; especially hand to hand or CQB. I am by no means a thug or some kind of aggresive psycho who's in prison though LOL. I'm just a weary warrior who feels old beyond his years, who has left the ring and the street to do something constructive for a change. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Accordingly, I have built an extensive medical knowledge that is focussed on the acute or life-threatening medical and trauma related emergencies. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

While I often come across as quiet, I assure you I am a scholar and a gentleman. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

If you want a second set of eyes on your work send me a message, if I can, I'll /br /

Grey.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My area of expertise has to be fighting. Any kind of fighting. Armed. Unarmed. Multiple opponents whatever...br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

This extends to combat and anything to do with the military. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

My second strength would have to be in emergency medicine, anything you want to know about that I can help with. If its bleeding or breathing and about to stop, I've seen it, treated it or caused it. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Finally if you want a better understanding of the effects of violence on the body and mind I can help to craft this in your writing and give you a first person view on the subject. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I understand I come across as quite a serious guy, but I am really quite the opposite. I am told I have a pretty good sense of humour and will give the comedy writing a whack if you are game. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

A narrow writing range I understand; I am still very much a blunt instrument by default, but these are the areas I know are my strengths. I have had some positive reviews for my character development and fluff, but meh read for yourself and see what you think.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I've got to be honest my grammar is still a bit patchy, it has been a while since I have had to do much writing in this format but I would say it's ok at a fundamental level. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I'm not great with capturing the female perspective at times /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

As a Beta-reader I think I would find it difficult writing about characters I don't know or don't understand but hell I'll give it a try if thats what you want, maybe just give me a bit of a rundown about the person first if that's the case. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I'm sure of got plenty more weaknesses too that I can't think of right now (Kryptonite?).

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I've listed my strengths and I guess I'd prefer to write about what I know. That being said I am a pretty openminded person and if the right characters are there I might give it a go, try me. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Heck I wrote fluff pieces in my last stories so there ya go! br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

If it is a bit dark I don't mind having a look, but note my list of stuff I'll avoid first though thanks.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Is it slash they call it? Guy-on-guy? Don't get me wrong, not a homophobe by any stretch of the imagination but just not my game, not really something I enjoy to read or write about. Tack onto that any rape, torture or rubbish like that. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Too angsty I'm probably going to bail on it too. I see enough grief on a day to day basis and can do without things getting to heavy on my days off.
