I have a lot of pet peeves as a writer, and I get “peeved” a lot when I view posts on social media. Just because it is a casual post does not mean you shouldn’t put your best foot forward. Especially if you’re a writer.
If you want to attract potential readers, every post you make on Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Your Own Blog, etc., please take the time to do a fast spell check. Type the post in your word processing software prior to posting it on the site. This will help you catch many grammatical and spelling errors. The last thing you want to do is look uneducated if you’re trying to promote yourself as a writer. Believe me, I’ve seen it a thousand times.
Do yourself a favor and SPELL CHECK IT FIRST!
About Kelly Abell
I am a writer, blogger, and graphic artist. My aim for you is to utilize this blog to help you improve your writing skills, and to educate you on the publishing business. If you need help with writing, want to self-publish a book and need advice, or just want to kick a story idea around to see what works best, that's what I'm here for. As I gain knowledge from editors and publishers, I will share that knowledge with you.
As writers we should always strive to improve our craft and grow. A day should not pass where you haven't learned or tried something new with your writing.
Many thanks to my Night Owl Friend, Lea Ellen Borg for editing my posts!
Best to you and all your characters and stories. Write on, my friends...Write on.
I no wat you meen, Kelly. Just kidding about the spelling. I just couldn’t resist. Great topic, and one that I can relate to as well.
I no write? LOL
