Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Though I've yet to take a stab at beta-reading, I imagine I'd be a bit of a hard case. If you want kindness, reviews are the place to find it, not beta-reading. I expect my beta-readers to be harsh with me, and I will try to be harsh myself. I'm blunt, and to the point... I try to be anyway. I'll try to explain when I think something needs to be changed, and I'll try to at least give feedback on anything that seems to be significant.

I expect people I beta for to be ready to handle criticism. Lots of it.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm a grammar nazi, and I have a critical eye for POV, characterization and plot. I also have a deep fondness for detail, though I've yet to really expand on it myself.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Don't hand me filler. Also, trust the spell checker over me. (My spelling skills haven't been the same since high school Spanish.)

I'm rather bad at non-plot-driven character interactions.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I honestly prefer stories that either ignore pairings, keep them on the back burner or leave the canon pairings.

I have a very strong preference for sci-fi, fantasy, action and adventure.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'll admit, romance stories usually just grate on my nerves. And I'm not very good at romance myself... I can't explain why things feel wrong to me in romance, I just say that it does. So just leave me out of the romance circle.

Also, if your story has no foreseeable conflict, don't show it to me. Same with if it tosses in one character that solves all the typical problems and heavy bashing of the same or multiple characters, too.
