Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I write more often than it seems, my problem is getting the words to make it online. For anyone who enjoys writing and just needs some advice, or wants to bounce ideas off of someone, I'm the girl for you. I've never done this before, but I have often read through stories my friends have given me and corrected what seemed to be problematic, even if it got me into trouble with them. To lay it out on the table, I'm not afraid to tell you the truth, but I will be as polite as possible about it. Flames and criticism aren't my thing, but I'll tell you straight up what needs work and how we can go about dealing with it.

I am huge with grammer and poor spelling drives me nuts, but only with help can we improve, and I'm happy to help.

For anyone who wants my help, just let me say that I love brainstorming and if you need ideas or want someone to bounce ideas off of I'll be here for you. Don't expect an answer immediately, but I should be able to give you a response with 48 hours at the most. My life doesn't revolve around fanfiction, but I can get online often enough to at least give you an answer, and if I need to I'll print out your story and read it between classes, going over everything I can.

Whatever I don't know, I promise I'll find out so that together we can help you produce the best story you can write.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am a major spelling hound, and grammer is important to me. Either poor spelling or grammer is a huge turn-off for people reading stories. Forming words to create art is a skill like any other and takes practice. Characters are another of my forte's and it takes an interesting character to move a story along.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not great at distinguishing story and plot, and small things sometimes escape my attention unless I read the same thing a few times.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anime is fine with me mostly, old and new. I'll read anything Biblical or different TV shows. CSI is fine as are numerous others that I can't think of at the moment because there's too many of them to remember. Also, if anyone likes stories such as Power Rangers or the like I'll read those too, because I have a soft spot for my old favorites. I'll do mythical stories too, as long as it still counts as fanfiction (ie. vampires, werewolves, fairy tales, etc.)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
If I don't know much about something it's most likely not something I'm willing to read or beta, because finding out about it just so the story makes sense doesn't fly with me. Also, Harry Potter and Bleach I'll pretty much not do because both of those just annoy me. Finally, anything with too much foul language or sexual themes I avoid unless there is good, very good, reason. It just doesn't interest me to do those things, they are both turn-offs for me as far as writing.
