something I found funny


Anyone who reads this knows I have poor grammar and spelling.  I have a learning disability.  (this is not an excuse  it's just a 'so you know why I reacted this way' thing)

Anyway I was reading a post - that was a poll I supose.  One of the questions was what makes you stop reading a story.  I was not suprised that most of the people said 'poor spelling and grammar' what I was suprised by was how many people said 'poor spelling and grammar' that had words that *I* could see were mis spelled, or had grammar worse then mine. 

If I can see how bad your S+G are you have no call complaining about it in others. 

 

Since this is a post about S+G I should spell check - but I'm lazy.  Sorry.

See I'll list that as a reason sometimes, but you must understand, if a fic as grammar and spelling errors such that *I* start to notice, that's pretty bad right there *L*

Honestly so long as I can read it it its understandable, grammar and spelling are not biggies for me. I can't explain exactly stops me dead, but it is usually characterization related.

And sometimes, the premis just does not grab me.

But I read the *worst* spelled fic ever just because it was a good Peter fic =P

Oh yeah, I know I'm the same way about grammar and spelling if I notice it I sugest a beta. But I wouldn't ansere a servay saying that I couldn't read a story with bad grammer and spelling (because the question was something like the thing that will make you put down a story and not read it or something like that)useing bad grammer and spelling. sigh*

Mostly I stop reading because the premis dosn't grab me. Or I'm not in the mood. I put down a lovely story yesterday that I just wasn't in the mood for - and it was a Paul from Twilight fic I'll useuly read anything for a Paul fic.
