Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Anyone who would like to request me as a betareader, please know that I will be as thorough as I can when looking over your piece. This may lead to me being nitpicky over some of the details, but it's not done out of any ill-will or condescension. Because even though I may pick the piece apart, I will always have something positive to say about it. I want to help you grow as a writer, just as you offer me a chance to grow as both a betareader and /

br /

If you ever have any questions, fee free to contact me. I'm willing to listen to new ideas of both the veteran writers and the /

br /

I'll try to help you to the best of my ability. This does mean, however, that I might take longer than you would like depending on my life at the time. But I can guarantee that I will do my best to keep in contact if something happens to delay /

br /

And, once again, if there are any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
One of my strengths is characterization and personality. Being a psychology major, I know plenty of the motivational factors in a person's thinking and why characters may do the things they do. If something doesn't seem to fit quite right with the character, I'll be sure to help point that /

br /

I'm also pretty good with grammar issues. Even though there may be some things I might miss, I'll be sure to catch most of the errors. If you ever have any questions, I'll do my best to explain why the mistake is a grammatical error. br /

br /

I have taken a number of Creative Writing classes and I minored in the field as well, so I do have experience.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I do have a very busy life, so sometimes I may take longer than you would like for me to work on a piece. Other times I may get it done within the day. But I can say for sure that it will be a thorough read-through for both /

br /

Sometimes I may come off as harsh, but I hope you will see that it is not my intention to sound rude. For any comments that I make, I have valid reasons to make them, so if you ever have a question about a part I may have picked apart, feel free to ask and I'll gladly explain.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm not very picky with what I read, but I would prefer if it's something that I'm familiar with. I do have a list that I try to update as to what I've been reading/watching/playing. If you aren't sure whether or not I'm familiar with the area you're writing in, feel free to just ask. Chances are I'll probably recognize /

br /

If your story has original characters in it, that's fine with me. If it has yaoi, yuri, or hetero, I'm not shy. If it's a crossover, I say, "Bring it." br /

br /

I'm not choosy, so I guess the main point is, send them my way.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
As of right now, I have yet to encounter a type of story that I would not betaread. When I do, I'll be sure to put it /

br /

Serious inquiries only, please! Please don't request me as a beta for someone else, if they want my help, they can damn well ask me themselves.
