Are You a Literary Dunce?
If words and their use really matter to you, I’m afraid to say that these days, you (and I) appear to be in the minority.
Take as an example the ‘comments’ people leave on various blog posts. Yesterday I was reading a post on a friend’s blog about the unacceptably poor standards in a lot of self-published books these days.
As usual, his latest post drew a number of people out of the woodwork to comment. Then the fun began. While agreeing with him, their bad spelling et al. was all too apparent.
I know that some computer-based gizmos have automatic systems which guess what you are going to say. TURN THEM OFF FOR GOD’S SAKE!
The same goes for a lot of proprietary spellcheckers too.
Above all, if you want to be taken seriously, stop exposing your literary shortcomings to the world for goodness sake! If you don’t have access to an editor, then get someone who has a command of the language to proofread for you.
