Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta reader, I am the kind of person who seeks to truly make a story better. I am a perfectionist, extremely so, and once I've taken on a project I like to be as thorough and complete as possible. Should you choose to request my services, I simply ask that you have given your piece of work a quick run over initially, and that you understand that what I suggest is how I, as a writer myself, think you'll be able to present a better, more unified story. As such, you are not required to change anything I suggest, and likewise I will be very unhappy if I am accused of ruining a story. Other than that, I'm a pretty laid back person, and I'm always willing to help out a fellow writer. My services include several manuscript editings, plotting, worldbuilding, and helping to develop round, complex characters. Believability is something I focus on highly.

Should you wish to request my services, please contact me in any of the following ways:
Send me a message via fictionpress Email: OR AIM: rachelmetallium YIM: retrogirl33 MSN:

I am online most of the time, unless I am at school or working, so I should be able to respond very quickly. However, if you send your request via IM, please mention something about my beta services in the first message you send else I will likely put you on ignore and report you as spam. Again, this is not done to be mean or rude, but as a matter of principle for me.

Thanks again for considering my services, and I look forward to speaking with all interested.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Best Writing Skills:
Characterization Theme Symbolism Description Plotting Worldbuilding

Best at Editing:
Grammar/Punctuation Unity Theme Character Development Word Choice

I am best at writing short stories, but I can also help edit essays and novels as well. Additionally, I have taken several science and math courses along with my literature ones, and, as such, I have several tools to help develop good SF worlds.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Poetry is perhaps my greatest weakness, and as such I would not offer my services in that department. Also, sometimes I get a little sidetracked, and so it might take me a little bit to get a project done. However, rest assured that it will be done.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
There are very few types of stories I won't beta, though I am most experienced with writing horror, modern romances or dramas, fantasy, and science fiction.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I prefer not to betaread stories that involve female homosexuality, though I will do so if the concept is good and I have no qualms about editing stories involving male homosexuality. Similarly, drugs, violence, cursing, and gore do not bother me, neither do scenes of an explicit sexual nature. However, I do not like for them to be based on those sole aspects alone, and if they are I will refuse to work on the project. Finally, I will not edit poetry of any kind.
