Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
'ey, you can call me Claya. I'm eighteen and started writing when I was about ten. Obviously I've been doing this for a while. Though I don't have many things posted on fan fic, I have written countless stories over the years, just most are not fan fictions or I was dissatisfied with them.

Beta reading is very important in order to improve your writing. I know that my stories have greatly improved when I started taking a creative writing class and having my peers critique my stuff. Just remember, beta readers aren't here to attack you or bash your writing, we're here to help you and make you a stronger writer.

I'm open minded. I'm willing to read anything and treat it fairly. Though I'm not a fan of yaoi and yuri, I'll critique it and I'll probably like it just like any other fan fic. Don't be shy, just drop me a line and a copy of your story.

I'm online a lot, though sometimes it's hard to get a hold of me on Friday and Saturday evenings and of course I have school during the week. I'll love to listen to your ideas and I'm willing to bounce ideas off and motivate you to write.

Remember the more you do something the better you get at it!

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at finding plot problems and improper character motivation. I normally find most grammar, spelling, and punctuation issues. If something is lacking in your story ex: you repeat a certain word or don't mention the character's name enough is something I excel at.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can be nit picky and overly critical, just know that I'm even more picky with my work than anything else I read.

Somethings that I'll comment on are purely stylistic things. However I normally make a point in saying that it's a writing style thing, and to just 'make it work'.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to read stories of people who want to improve on their writing and will take my critiques to heart. There is nothing more frustrating than a writer who is overly defensive and won't listen to advice.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not poetry, and I'll tell you why. Poets are, in my opinion and experience, very defensive of their work and most of the time write verses just because the word at the end rhymes. Though if you really, really want me to beta read a poem for you I'll give it a shot.
