Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love, love, love to read! I read quickly and critically (I can read 5 novels in a busy week). I'd rather not critique poetry - poetry to me is something intimate and personal and should not be edited by other people. If you want someone who is going to be blunt with you, but still give occasional praise where it is due that's me. I won't sugar coat it for you, I'll put it to you straight.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Syntax and diction are my two greatest strengths. If you need help rephrasing a sentence or findging the right word, that's where I come in. I also can usually spot plot holes or laziness in writing. I can read for commas, semicolons, and comma splices.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am a terrible speller, but can usually spot when something isn't right. Also if I don't find a story captivating or interesting I will put it down. So don't be too surprised if my response is that I had to stop reading because I wasn't digging what you sent me.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am a huge sucker for teen novels a la: "Gossip Girl", "A-List", "It Girl", "Private", etc. Not to say that I like crappy writing. Because I don't. Please don't give me something to read that has a.) No plot, b.) Zero direction, c.) An unoriginal plot, d.) A complete lack of character development.

Also - if you have a screenplay please, please, please send it to me!!!! I love reading screen plays!!!

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Fantasy has never appealed to me. Don't even think about sending me any fantasy. My sister has a fantasy script she is getting published - when she asked me to read it I read the first 50 pages and put it down. I love that girl, but I cannot read fantasy.
