So, reviewing on YWS has given me some sort of reading condition. I can't read anything without picking it to pieces, imagining it was something I was critiquing on YWS. Makes it very hard to enjoy a book. *sigh* Anyway. When it comes to reviewing, I almost always notice bad beginnings, and telling instead of showing. Also I'm a grammar and punctuation freak.

What I can't, don't and won't ever review:
Science Fiction
Art and Photography
Any sort of poetry.
Fanfiction of books/movies I haven't read/watched.

Not because I don't like or enjoy the above, it's just that I wouldn't have any idea how to critique them.

Otherwise, I'd be happy to offer my opinion, and I don't ask for anything in return. ^.^ So please, link me to your work. :D
We're all a little weird. And life's a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.

Hi! A friend of mine seems to have the same kind of beta criteria as you, so I'm pretty sure I can take it. But to be honest, it still scares me when I hand my stuff over to her.

That being said, I'm honestly a little nervous. Haha! But I was hoping to get you to review my story, "And Then There Were Two". It's in novel form, and only on part two right now, but as a whole when it's all posted, the word count should be under 10k.

I was just hoping for a review on part 2, but you can take a look at part 1, as well if you'd like.

Last thing (haha, sorry... So much talking, I know), just skimming through parts 1 and 2, I do realize that there is a lot of extraneous narrations. Sorry for that. Just, bear with me. Haha

That's it! Thank you so much!
