Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I prefer to work with a physical copy, so if you have any aversions to me printing your story out, tell me. I can't guarantee it'll yield the same results (because the screen tends to mess with my head a little), but I can /

br /

I generally concentrate on simple language mistakes first, like grammar, spelling, and phrasing. Then I'll make sure it actually makes sense and gets your point (or what I think is your point) across - and then I will proceed to read the corrected version over and over and over again to make sure that it actually flows and that I haven't missed /

br /

I am an avid reader with broad horizons and as such have ample perspectives along with a lot of experience in catching the small stuff. I love reading in general and would very much like to see what your creativity results in. Also, reading is more important than sleep. Enough /

I don't know you. If I have something to say, I will say it. I will not worry about your feelings constantly. Proper etiquette and decency will be maintained, but I won't tell you your fic is good when it's not. Simple as /

Please actually write in English. I will not beta fics that are written completely in text lingo or messy, indecipherable word-like structures. I am not spell-check. A few mistakes or typos every now and then are perfectly fine, but please don't ryt leik diss. It pisses me off and it takes a LOT of time and energy to fix it if every sentence contains fourteen to twenty-five /

I have the right to deny a request. Don't get all pissy about it if I do.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm damn near obsessed with grammar, spelling and phrasing. I can fine-tune your sentences until they have a certain flair and actually convey what you want them to.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Don't ask me if you need to keep your characters in character all through the story. I'm no good at that. However, I can try, though I would suggest consulting another beta when I'm done.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I really enjoy crime, historical fiction, fantasy, adventure, and sci-fi stories. However, you can PM me and I'll consider almost everything.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
If you write religion-based works (on Christianity, Judaism, Islam and the like; fictional religions or religions that actually play a key part for the character or the category are fine), do not expect me to be a firm believer. I am an atheist, and if you have a problem with that, go ask someone else to beta your /

Racism and other prejudice is not okay by me, unless it is part of the plot. Do not ask me to betaread works that contain a hidden (or not-so-hidden) message that says blacks don't deserve to be treated as people or that being gay is wrong or Jews will rot in hell or other utter nonsense like that. We're all people here, and I expect you to act mature enough to realize that.
