Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I don't have much experience with being a beta, but I'm willing to help out those who ask for it. I'm an avid proofreader, hence why I have so little stories lurking about the site--I take too long.

I am an open-minded person who is not very judgmental, discriminatory, or prejudice, and I attempt to demonstrate this in everything I do. That includes being both a writer and a critic, since everybody is a critic in their own right. Any criticism I give, regardless if it is praise or disapproval, I give with the notion that critique is to better a person. I believe honesty is the best policy, and though sometimes things I say may not be considered appropriate, I say what I think. March to the beat of my own drum, so to speak. And I encourage everyone to do the same.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm a general grammar fanatic, and I also LOVE all that literary terms stuff we all learned in high school. People who uses these things on purpose get kudos in my book.

Also If you want your stories to be consistent, I'm the person to go to. I'd sacrifice elegance for consistency any day.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I can be overtly blunt when I say things. I also have a tendency to over criticize and dissect every piece of the puzzle (the puzzle being your work); basically I can go too far. I would appreciate it if you would tell me I'm overdoing it, and I'll regain control over myself.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Ideally, I'd say I'll read anything. Lucky for you, I am an occasional idealist. I won't beta stories about subjects I know little or nothing about because I don't think it would be fair to you. If you send me something my way that I honestly know little about, I'll try to find you someone who I believe will help you.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not beta any story that comes from a genre with which I am not familiar. For the record, I don't know anything about any of the Anime, Cartoons, or Comics categories. If you have a story that falls under any of those, I admit I won't be of any help. Other than that, I'm ready.
