Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I always have the time and energy to distract myself from real work. Hence, here I am. I lack the strong will of my friends to actually do schoolwork, so expect whatever you email me to be edited quickly and loaded with much detail. I excel at procrastination, and you benefit.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Logic and flow of plot - I will go through the story and try to sort out any logical inconsistencies throughout the chapters. I will examine each new plot twist and determine its plausibility based on prior events.

Spelling, grammar - This former is immensely easy--just use spellcheck. If you don't have Word, that's fine--go download OpenOffice. The latter I will attempt to correct. I don't boast perfect grammar, but I do try.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Inability to notice errors in the plot and characterization when the story is addictive. Sometimes I find that not reading it for a few days helps me notice glaring problems, but there are no guarantees.

Tendency to skim over paragraphs with a lot of metaphorical allusions instead of really reading them and trying to grasp what's going on.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Action/adventure, mystery, hurt/comfort. I will pretty much do anything, assuming it doesn't fall under the Not My Cup of Tea category.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anything that involves blatant bashing of a character. (Sasuke and Kakashi being prime victims these days...)
