| firstdown 's Beta Reader Profile
Author has written 5 stories | StarTrek: Voyager, and Mentalist.
β : firstdown is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm an English major with a concentration in Creative Writing and minoring in Psychology. Proofreading has always been an enjoyable task for me, particularly when it comes to grammar, sentence structure, and overall cohesion of the story. Sometimes criticism is harsh but mine will always be constructive. If I don't like something, I will tell you why and, if you wish, offer some suggestion on how to fix it.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, sentence structure, and overall cohesion of the story. I would say spelling too but I think spell check should do a good enough job for all of us!
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I can be a bit over-positive. I can be harsh if you ask me to be but I'm a big believer in constructive criticism. I also like to sandwich bad comments between good ones. Must be the college minor in Psych talking, haha.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Nothing really specifically preferred. Pairings are the only thing I might be picky about but I'm mostly a traditionalist when it comes to those (i.e. Castle/Beckett, Jane/Lisbon, Janeway/Chakotay, Harry/Hermione, House/most females on that show, etc.)
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
My only big no-no is baby fic. Slash is okay but I don't read as much of it as I used to and it really depends on the pairing.
