Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
First off, we are two; Lothr and Emparra. We put this beta profile together, and so we take a similar approach to beta-ing, and have merged our styles into one profile for the Guild. Hence the reference to us in the singular throughout this profile; if you have any questions about it, feel free to PM us. And now, on to business!br /br /

I am an avid reader, I tend to devour books and binge movies and shows that I like, and spend copious amounts of time writing fanfictions of them. I also love to read other writer's conceptions of the things I love. I will take on any length of story in just about any genera and category, and will provide services as simple as spell-checking, to checking sentence structuring and coherency of grammar, to being a sounding-board or advisory for ideas and story outlines or character creation. br /br /

I will not, however, write your story for you. I also reserve the right to retract my services at any time. If you are interested in my services, private message me a short description and/or a sample of your story(s), what services you need, and to what extent, if you would like to make contact about beta-ing. I will respond to you within a week as to whether or not I can provide for what you need. If I take an author on, I require one week minimum time for beta reading each draft, though time may vary depending on word count and the amount of work required. The author will be notified of any changes in /br /

Also, please tell me what services you desire. Be it spell-checking, sentence coherency, help with expanding vocabulary (making it sound fancy), plot development, idea bouncing, etc... otherwise I have no clue what I'm supposed to do. If you say "just read it and tell me what you think," expect a document in return that includes all of the services I have listed in this profile. If you don't want all that, then SAY SO! *insert charming grin here*br /br /

NOTE; I will be brutally honest in my assessment of any writing sent to me. I do not believe in sugarcoating the truth, however I do not ever intend to insult, hurt, or put down any writer. What I offer is constructive criticism, and it is always kindly meant. I'm not actually a jerk, sometimes I just sound like one... severely lacking in social skills.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
The areas of beta reading/writing I excel at include: Proper word usage; Extensive vocabulary (seriously, its big enough to get me into trouble); Spell checking (unless autocorrect takes over); Sentence structure and coherency; Knowledgeable in proper writing and can identify good/bad writing skills and habits; Proper story formatting (spacing, punctuation, indentation, alignment, layout); Good sense of rhyme and rhythm (and reason too, while we're at it).
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weaknesses for beta reading include: Cannot explain rules behind proper writing, sentence structure, formatting, etc... (also why I'm not an English teacher); Not proficient in all forms of poetry; I read a lot of old books, so writing /correction style may sometimes not seem "up to date" but they were pertinent at one point. I promise.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm more used to action and adventure, angst, hurt/comfort, family, friendship, spiritual type stories and I personally like sci-fi and historical fiction. Objectively though, I'm open to just about anything. Check the categories I have listed for specific references. If you have any questions about what I'm "into" and would be interested in beta reading, please send me a private message.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Things I'm not a fan of include: Not great with romance, humor/crack, parody, suspense, poetry, anime, extensive OC's, Mary-Sue's; Don't ask me to beta; slash (m/m, f/f), yaoi, lemon/smut, foul language... I like to keep it clean; If you send me a block of unseparated words, I will not sort through it, paragraphs must be ten sentences long at most.
