Anonymous late-night whine

I am no kind of writer.  I've never pretended, nor aspired, to be a writer.  But it annoys the shit out of me when I read the blog of an 'aspiring writer' and it sucks.  As in glaring misspellings and grammatical errors.  Not to mention ridiculously boring content.  I want to leave a comment saying "THIS SUCKS!  You are never going to make it as a writer!"  But, I'm just not that mean.

Amen to that! But they'd just tell you that's what editors are for, I think. Clearly their teachers never enforced "spelling counts."

Yeah, who decides who or what a writer is? Seems like any jack can call himself one. And get published. And make millions. Shit.

I can't stand it when people don't proofread their work. Everyone makes mistakes, but it shouldn't be sloppy. Or boring.

I love it when someone whose writing is questionable at best (massive understatement) has a heading on their sidebar called "Writing Tips."

Really?
