Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
CURRENTLY: I'm looking for alpha writers right now. I'd like a brief summary and an example of their work before accepting them, however. This is non-negotiable. If you do not attach work or a plausible explanation for why work is not attached, I will not hesitate to deny your request. Right now, I am searching for writers beginning their novels, or writers that are midway through their novels in any genre.

I have very high expectations of people. That's the biggest worry you, as the writer, should have. If I find something I dislike, I /will not/ hesitate to tell you. I have no problem speaking my mind. Oh, and, if you aren't serious about your story, do /not/ contact me.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Pretty good at the following:
-flow -finding loopholes -hashing plot ideas out with people -discussing the story and trying to figure out where it's heading -basic grammar

I work very well with basic grammar and I've learned how to spot tense mistakes lately. I'm not an English major, but I will try my best. I do like to give very detailed reviews and I will change sentences to fix the flow and grammar. I always try to stay true to the author, however.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Other than grammar not being my biggest strength, I can't really think of any weaknesses. I have a tendency to take my time with works, which is considered a fault by some. I'll take anywhere from a few days to three weeks on a single chapter. Obviously, the longer it is, the longer I'll take.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm a big fan of sad love stories and stories with horrible endings. Also a huge fan of supernatural, fantasy and sci-fi stories. However, I love virtually all genres and will take just about anything.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Some people have qualms about homosexuality, transgenders and transsexuals, drugs, etc. I do not. Most things do not bother me at all, so do not hesitate to send me your writing even if it is a bit off the wall.
