Listening to every heart
English errors, grammatical errors, spelling errors can occur all the time, especially when posting directly to the site, as I'm doing now. Of course, Ron provided dictionary.com up above [Yea! Ron!] so a lot of us have NO CHOICE not to fix an error, especially spelling errors...because he's put in a handy-dandy way of checking for ourselves.
I think a lot of it has to do with just being lazy. Or trying to talk "in the lingo" of some of the writers today. Which, I personally find, to be very sad.
To me, it shows a lack of professionalism. Would I really want to come back years from now and find stuf posted jus b/c I cud do it?
Any top-quality magazine or literary agent wouldn't look twice at some of the stuff we see now and then. But I'll allow that there is a genuine mix of excitement, enthusiasm, some reasons to "hurry and post it!" before the thought dies...but still, I will always be appreciative if any of my work slips by with a spelling or grammatical error that just makes your hair turn gray, Liz, and will be grateful if you say "did you really mean to type in 'such and so' Sun, huh, did you? Really???"
So feel free to call me on it when you see it...because I don't like finding it anymore than you do!
