|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love to read and write and would like to help writers who truly want to improve. When beta-reading, I correct all mechanics (grammar, spelling, and punctuation, which are highlighted for your knowledge) and comment on style, plot, flow, and any other content I feel could stand some improvement. Depending how long the work is, I can usually get it back to you within anywhere from one hour to one week.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling, grammar, punctuation, vocabulary (for instance, I will generally refuse to let you use the same noun, adverb, or verb twice in at least fifteen words), context, dialogue, characterization, plot.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Timeliness, perfectionism, bluntness if warranted. I also tend to give up when there is simply too much to say.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Any of my selected categories are fine. I will read those not selected, but I may not be able to beta quite as well as I would like to. And though I will read it, I tend to dislike most rhyming poetry, as it more often than not sounds stilted and forced.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Horror, and anything that falls remotely near the province of the dreaded beast Emo.
