Okay, I know this is petty, but for some stupid reason this is REALLY bugging me so if you're interested keep reading. If not, move along, move along, there's nothing to see. 'These aren't the droids you're looking for...'

I'm ranting about FFN. I know I'm not the best writer out there. Hell, I know that my stuff sucks, but I post anyway. My ego doesn't need stroking like some writers on FFN, but is it TOOOOO much to ask for one fucking review there!!!

Run-on rant alert!!!!!!

I don't care if you love or hate my drabbles, but to see writers (I use that term very loosely) who can't spell, or at the very least use a spell checker, whose grammar is so poor that it makes me wonder how they got through school, or seeing sentences that are so poorly constructed that you have to read it multiple times just to figure out what they are saying, get several reviews stating that "This is the best thing I ever read" REALLY pisses me off!!! What ever happened to using proper grammar? What ever happened to proper spelling? What ever happened to VOCABULARY?!?!?!?!?

To see these folks use 'ware' when they mean 'where' or 'there' for 'they're' or my favorite 'hear' for 'here' and get rave reviews is just so disheartening. Seeing SHIT like that get a following makes me wonder if it's even worth keeping this account open. Hell, it makes me wonder if I should even bother writing anything down.

My hubby knows that I write to use it as a sling-shot for when I get frustrated while editing videos professionally, to get the creative juices flowing again and get my client projects done within the contracted time frame. I write for fun, but I still make sure (or at least try to) that everything is spelled correctly, that my grammar is correct and that it makes some sense to the reader.

If you like it, tell me. If you hate it, tell me. You will not hurt my feelings. I have a very thick skin. I was a graphic designer for 15 years with a Fortune 500. I'm a photographer/videographer/editor now. I'm used to people telling me "It Sucks".

I don't want fake complements. I'm not afraid of negative comments like some are.

Just say something! Anything!
