Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am completely meticulous about spelling and grammar. I read everything at least twice to make sure I haven't missed anything. I also can fact check for you to make sure you aren't making any mistakes in your story. If you'd like help on your flow or syntax I can also help with that.
I love LOST and Harry Potter and will devour stories about them zealously. I am a perfectionist and a hard worker. I will work diligently on any story until I am one hundred percent satisfied with the result.

I believe in brutal honesty. If you are worried about the general quality of your work I will tell you what I think. I will be blunt but I am not mean. I believe in constructive criticism, not flaming. I will tell you what I honestly think of your story, but I always try to do so in the most helpful way possible. I'm not out to hurt feelings, just to inform other writers of their flaws, as all writers have flaws. And I do so because I know that they can become better writers if they are willing to work for it. I would want any beta reader of my own to do the same for me.

If you want someone to fawn all over your work no matter what the quality than you and I will not get along. But if you are looking to improve as a writer and develop tough skin in the process then I can definitely help you with it.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My spelling and grammar are very good. I'm one of those people who obsess over the difference between a comma and a semicolon. I love spell check and would be lost without it. I'm also very good at checking the flow of different paragraphs to make sure they are readable. And if you are worried about your story sticking to the canon and not getting basic facts wrong then I am your go-to girl as I always check every minute detail in a story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to go a bit flowery with my writing. I obsess about the word choice and syntax and sometimes lose sight of the bigger picture.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
As for the stories I like to Beta, well I love romance stories where the characters have a good connection and the buildup is believable. Same goes for stories about friendship or family.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
While I love romance I do hate cheese. I can tolerate a certain amount of fluff but only in small doses. I'm also not a fan of PWP stories that go nowhere. I'm not afraid of graphic imagery but I like when there's content amidst the smut. I like doing one shots best but I'm up for multi-chapter fics as well. But don't come to me if you are writing an epic novel.
