Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I don't have a lot published so I'm not sure if anyone will want me as a beta. But I am available. I have an English degree and post bachelor work on early modern drama. I work in theater so I have a wild up and down schedule - this beta-ing, on the downswing.

I am open to other things, I am well read and watch a lot of things, if your request is something I'm familiar with, I'll take it. Any rating is fine by me, I am extremely hard to offend and difficult to shock. I like both tragedy and witty humor. I do ask that you look over your own writing before you send it to me, I will edit for content and structure, but I am not a spell check. Alright then, send in those stories!

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Rhetoric: sentence structure, grammar, fluency, colored language, style and/or /br /br /

I especially excel at the thematic structure of stories, I'll keep an eye out for representations of gender, identity, politics, and race. I'm a Sociology minor, and it shows. I will not try to change any theme or message you have, all opinions and stories are valid. I will only point things out. br /br /

I spot Mary Sues quite frequently.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling, passive voice, wordiness.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I have read a lot, and watched a fair amount. If I know it well enough, I'll read it. Just ask. I love Buffy, Harry Potter, Pride and Prejudice, Wuthering Heights, Shakespeare - any movie adaptations (I've probably seen it), Song of Ice and Fire, Star Trek, Firefly, Scrubs, Weeds, Veronica Mars. I read/watch too many things!br /br /br /

I tend to like darker stuff: dark tragedy, dark comedy, dark satire. Plots that are perfect and happy all the time are boring. I prefer to beta for stories with a dramatic point, if it's a lemon or simply wish fulfillment it has to be exceptionally good. br /br /br /

Not gonna lie, I like love stories.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Comics other than Sandman, just don't know them...

Vampire Diaries, not a fan, sorry.
