Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am new to this whole beta reading thing on ths site, but in life I have read many stories that my friends have written and asked me to edit for them. I have had three years of college English and I am also a published poet, so I enjoy reading just about anything that somebody will write. br /

br /

I try to be honest about everything I beta, but not brutally so. I do not enjoy when others cut me or my works down, so I try not to do it to others. I can however be rather blunt but sometimes it is for the best. I will always be patient, offering any tips and advice I can. You do not have to use it however. If you feel that my suggestions would not work and that you like your story just the way it is, that is perfectly alright. It is, after all, your story! br /

br /

If you so choose to use me, I would ask that you do proof read your work before sending it to me. Misspellings and grammer errors do tend to be aggravating, but I do understand that they do happen. Trust me, my keys tend to not work from overuse! However, if it is blatantly obvious you have not checked your work at all, you will be recieving a return PM asking for a better, proof read version. Read it aloud. Believe me, it /br /

Also, please have correct puctuation! Have all you quotes, thoughts, questions, etc. etc. properly notated! This is a huge pet peeve of mine. I am not able to always tell where one character is speaking and another one is answering. It is highly annoying. And finally, please seperate your ideas in to seperate paragraphs and with double space between the paragraphs. I absolutely detest having to read something like 8,000 words and it has absolutely no, or very little, formatting!br /br /

If you choose to use me, drop me a line and send me a PM, and I will get back to you as soon as I can. I do have school and three jobs so I am busy but I check my email often. However, if your short PM has more mistakes than my betaprofile, I cannot guarantee a reply for fear of what the prototype of your story will look like.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am well versed in looking for basic grammatical and spelling errors. I am also very good at keeping characters "in character" if I know the character well. I can also help look up information for more details in a story. I am a liscenced EMT and massage therapist, so most medical and injury related information I can help with. I can also usually come up with a good title and sometimes (if God is with me) an even better summary to draw in readers. I am a very fast reader and can usually get back with you the same day, time allowing.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not very good at working with OC's unless you can give me every detail about the character. I also have problems with writing action scenes. My brain works at a faster pace than most people's so I have a hard time keeping my fingers running fast enough to capture what I am thinking. I can expound upon already written fight scenes, but it make take a bit longer than the rest of what I am helping with. As I said before, I am very busy, but will make every effort to contact you the same day or the next day that you have contacted me.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta poetry and stories of these genres: Humor, drama, angst, mystery, suspense, family, hurt/comfort, and friendship. I will attempt to help with others if you so choose, but don't hold your breath! _
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't really enjoy horror because I usually end up working on here from about 11 pm to 4 am, and then end up going to sleep and having nightmares about your story. I know that is the primary intention, but I don't enjoy waking in a cold sweat, screaming like a 4 year old! I am also not a big fan of betaing parody's, although some are funny. I also refuse to do Mary Sue's. Sorry in advance!
