Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a strong writer and have been for many years now. I try to be very professional about my and other peoples work, though I have not had anything seriously published outside of Fiction Press yet. I just want people to strive for there best, however, I am not cruel when it comes to giving advice. I may play the devils advocate a little, but its not like I won't give a proverbial cookie or two for trying to do ones best. I more than likely will point out more good than bad, trying to equal out the playing field a bit. My stories I write I try to make enjoyable not only to others but to myself as well. So I expect to try and hope that others will have exciting stories as well that they enjoy reading of their own besides the reader they pump them out to.

*I love writing fantasy and science fiction. They are my top genres, leaving action and adventure to trail them. So naturally I love reading the styles I write, seeing what others can do.

*My motto for writing is to just keep writing and reach for the next imaginative star.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm great at catching detail, plot, setting, characters, and minor on grammar and spelling. I mostly look at the meat of stories and whether they are of full rounded interest. So someone may spell something wrong, but what's worse; the person who nit picks the grammar/spelling of the story or the one who just flat out refuses to read a story cause it lacks detail and enthusiasm towards it, that's where I can be of the most help.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling and grammar are my worst areas, but I do try. I always came down to the conclusion, don't look at the material until your done writing it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Fantasy (any sort is fine), Sci-fi (again anything is fine), Action, and Adventure are my top preferred, not saying that I won't read others, but I just get the most into those genres. Note: I will take light romance as long as its kept real and not the heavy main focus of the plot.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Heavy romance (I absolutely refuse them, I have been permanently turned away from reading that sort of thing).
