Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I will first read your story as a reader, then I'll read it a second time through as your beta-reader. If at first I'm not gripped by your writing style, then we'll work on the structure of your introduction. I love editing and working with people. I'm approachable and not at all harsh, so if you're a beginner or just want to make sure your writing flows, I'll be there to help.

I'm a college student presently, so while I'll try to be as punctual as possible with feedback, I ask that you give me a grace period of one to two days to get back to you.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My main strength is the ability to vividly describe the emotions and motivations of characters. I also always provide my chapters with structure and setting. I'm a huge fan of symbolism, so if you have some good, deep writing that requires a skillful eye, I'd be more than happy to help you out.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
When writing, I tend to overuse certain words as well as repeat phrases or sentiments. I almost always catch this upon reading my work over, however.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm open to most stories. Since I have to write a preference, I'll say that I prefer to beta stories that have a generally good, original plot and good characterization. I read most pairings as well. Het, slash, or femslash: I'll read it all and help you along as long as the characters aren't too OOC.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
While I like angst as much as the next person, overly emotional stories about teenage drama don't appeal to me. However, coming-of-age stories are a completely different case. There's a huge difference between being original and being completely trite when writing about a teenage crisis.
