|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a Beta Reader, I try my very best to pick up all mistakes from the writing. I do have certain requirements as for what kinds of stories, but I'm generally okay with most. If you have a story you are not serious about writing, don't turn it to me. I Beta for the people who are serious about writing.
I am not your personal edit-everything-I-write person. You must be able to take constructive criticism and acknowledge both mine and your errors. I'm not the person who will nag you for every mistake you make, but if I give you advice again and again, and you make no effort to improve, then don't expect me to Beta for you anymore. Everyone has room for improvement.
If I correct something of yours that you don't understand, go right ahead and tell me. It may result in a grammar lesson, but I'm sure we can both understand each other.
I Beta for many people, so don't be surprised if I turn you down. I'm not saying that your story is not worth my time; it's simply the fact that I don't necessarily HAVE the time.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My main strength is grammar/punctuation/spelling. I don't tend to nitpick about it, but some time along the line, I may give a long lecture; I tend to do that a lot. I work quite well with characters, and I know millions of ways to make your characters believable.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes, when you make a mistake more than once, and it's turning to be quite troublesome, I might not have the heart tell you. It may be good for you, depending on what you are looking for in a Beta, but it doesn't correlate with what I stated above, which troubles me. I also have very poor judgement of humor.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
My interests vary too much; I'm not even going to bother keeping this section updated.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will absolutely not do M-Rated content; don't even suggest it. Otherwise, I think I'm good.
