Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My expectation is simple: be honest and accept criticism. I can't help you if I'm concerned that I will hurt your feelings. I am never needlessly mean, but I am also not afraid to point out when something isn't working. Remember that no one has perfect writing, everyone has room for improvement, and someone will always find something that you've missed.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I worked as a writing center tutor in college and I was also a creative writing major. I particularly enjoy brainstorming with people, as it's sort of like a brain teaser. I can almost always help people work through a block. I also excel at helping with grammar/sentence structure, finding/fixing plot holes, and providing source information on a number of mental health topics.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can be a bit of a stickler for grammar. I do my best to be mindful of it and not be a jerk, but I will almost always point out grammatical errors.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't particularly have a preference, though I will be especially helpful for mental health issues and fics that deal with bdsm relationships.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not a fan of major character death or mpreg.
