If you’re going to critique someone
For the sake of all things brown, please learn how to spell and use proper grammar. Nothing makes me laugh harder than a member of one of these bully troll groups who claims to be a literary expert and yet either their profile or their reviews are full of spelling and grammar errors.
Physician, heal thyself!!!
If your worried? Your? Are you kidding me?
For those of you who are clueless, here’s a hint:
You’re – contracted form of the words you and are. Example: You’re going to have to rewrite this story. It’s awful.
Your – shows possession. Example: Your story sucks. End of story.
It’s not that hard. I promise you.This is the story summary from a critic. She can’t even spell summary properly and yet I’m supposed to listen to her critique of my story? Yeah right.
What I find particularly funny about this post was that this person pointed out in the second to the last sentence of the review that the writer should use proper grammar. Go back up to the first sentence and this child can’t differentiate between you’re and your.
And lastly, someone who is also claiming to be a critic who does not have a grasp on the English language herself. Their trying to do? Surely you meant THEY’RE trying to do.
They’re is the contracted form of they and are. Example: They’re going to delete your story because we reported it.
Their shows possession. Example: Their story is in violation of the TOS rules of FanFiction.net
And lastly there shows location. Example: The critics over there can’t spell their way out of a wet paper bag.
Basic grammar rule: If your subject is plural, the verb needs to be singular. Example: The critics report stories that break the rules.
If your subject is singular, the verb will need to be plural. Example: The critic reports stories that break the rules.
This type of irony makes me laugh my ass off.
Until next time – Stay strong. Keep Writing.
