Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'll probably be pretty active and critical - I'm a bit of a grammar nut (although who vs whom will forever escape me), and I'll help you out with ideas or different ways to phrase or structure things. I don't mind if you ignore some of the stuff I say - I go more for the 'throw everything at the wall and see what sticks' approach, so somewhere, buried in the mess, might be something you like! If you're American, or at least use American grammar/spelling, don't worry - I'm British but I can cope with dropping some 'u's for the sake of your story. br /br /

Unfortunately, don't expect me to be too speedy at replying - I have quite a busy life outside the site which might not always line up with yours. Although, I'm pretty damn dutiful and I love my to do lists, so be assured I'll get to it eventually - and you might hit the jackpot and get it immediately.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar/spelling (British at least, American will be googled), fairly good at descriptive writing. Have a look at my stories and see if you like the style. I'm good at spotting cliches, clunky phrases or overused words (mainly because I cringe easily), so if you know you have some bad habits, I'll do my best to edit them out.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not a perfect writer by any means, and sometimes I sound pretty clunky too. Also, I'm woefully inept at keeping up to date, even with my own interests, so some references might completely pass me by, or seem out of character to me when actually they're perfectly accurate. I can't type accents to save my life; I can't do accents in person either which probably doesn't help. I have a habit of sounding pretty pretentious over a keyboard too (see 'woefully inept').
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anything goes really - I'm happy to beta out of fandom too, as long as you don't expect me to know any background!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'd prefer not to beta pure smut - if your story is a 300k epic with one sex scene, that's fine, but literary porno doesn't interest me.
