Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
English is my native language. I grew up with a red pencil and the local newspaper as my favorite exercise in editing. I can't stand heavy grammatical, spelling and punctuation errors in a story; it throws the reader out, and when a story is posted that way I don't usually bother reading past the second paragraph because it's torturous.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have been accused of "dual wielding a dictionary and thesaurus"... without actually getting either one out. I took college english courses. They were fun, and I didn't have to work hard at all to get top marks. I am tactfully blunt about my opinions. If I like something, I say so. If not, I try to break the news more gently. I believe in constructive criticism, but not destructive comments.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am slightly obsessive about doing things well. Depending on length and degree of involvement, it might take me a few days to get the work done.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I really like yaoi and BDSM, and I'm always okay with straight pairings.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Yuri is not my thing. Ever. Also, if you would like me to beta a story with an OC, please give them a name.
