Writing Online: 5 Pet Peeves.

  1. I can’t believe I still have to say this: SHARE THE LINK TO A WRITER’S WORK; do not copy and paste it on WhatsApp or any other platform.
  2. I have a lot of things to be critical of concerning posts on Instagram (e.g font used in a graphic could be too small for me to read easily or the content of the post could simply not be for me). I just scroll to the next post. People are just sharing their thoughts and not submitting work for deep literary critique.
  3. If you used to write when you were in Nursery School/Kindergarten, a. Good for you. b. I don’t care. c. Took a nap, thought about it…I still don’t care.
  4. Mansplaining. No.
  5. The ‘you should have ended your story this way’ crew are always people who know me in real life who believe their opinions have an impact on what I write. (Do I know you? Yes. Will I change the ending of my story after I’ve shared it just for you? No, sweetie).
