|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Your Expectations: Writers that submit to me can expect prompt and timely responses. I will never alter your actual story. Any critiques will be made in note form or ( ) for your benefit. I want to help you make your story the best it can be. If I don't know how to fix something I will tell you. I will never beat down your writing but I will be honest about my opinions.
My expectations: Prompt responses. Feedback. Thick skins. Honesty.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm very good with plot development, characterization, style consistency, pacing, and continuity. If your stuck or something just isn't jiving I will do my best to unstick you.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Grammar is not my strong point although if a computer would pick up on it I probably will. Most spellings I can handle but I do occasional miss words.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I generally like novel length works that are intended to be completed. By novel Length I mean 50,000 words or more. I'll consider beta reading for shorter fics if I like the content. I do not expect you to already have a large portion of the writing done. You could just be starting out. I really like stories that mix established characters with original ones.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't generally like heavily romantic plots that only circulate around two characters developing a romantic relationship. I'm also not into fics that are pure angst and tragedy.
