Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Who I am and what I do: Well, I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Technology, and I'm a relational database freak, so I love to look at character relationships. I also can usually catch spelling and repeat word mistakes. Please remember that I do miss things, just like anybody. What I'm expecting from you: Effort. I'm not going to rewrite your story for you. If you send me something that you've really tried to develop, I will do what I can to help you, but please remember, I am not always going to be your brainstorming buddy. Also, please at least use the Spell-check feature before you send me something. I can understand using the wrong word, but please don't just ignore grossly misspelled things just because "the beta will fix it."
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Character relationships, Plot twists, Vocabulary, Foreshadowing, Plot element relationships
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Action scenes can get hairy for me. I can do them, and I've made a lot of progress improving my writing style lately, but it takes some extra effort to make action scenes really shine.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love clean sci-fi and fantasy. Mysteries are okay, as long as you have a reasonably descent idea, but in general, I don't care much for them. Also, I don't mind Mary Sues as long as you handle it well.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No Westerns, time travel fics (unless you have a really great story), horror fics, explicit romances, vulgar/profane language, nudity, or other profound expressions of lewdness, or next gen fics... unless you can convince me they're half-way decent.
