    Again, ???

    I’m not sure what do you mean but @nemomon made a small joke. I apologize for any confusion you had. 

    Welcome 😇

    Hi Litany, nice to meet you,  you seem to be a really nice guy so I wouldnt worry about fitting in, people here seem to be really nice.

    I dont think you should really feel insulted because people treats you differently, lets say you are a really nice person, then most other people would feel like returning the favor, I think that is completely normal and you shouldnt worry about that, it probably has nothing to do with your age.

    About the writing issues, there is no shame in looking online for some tips, also dont fear the cliche, sometimes its just right.

    Good to see somebody just joining the community, makes me feel less out of place haha, hope we can get along.

     

    Better than expected

    They did not explain the joke properly. Mastertrek’s profile picture is Riddick from the Chronicles of Riddick and.. its basically an inside joke you wouldn’t get.

    (okay, what am I supposed to write now?) :looking around for a distraction: Oh yeah, also worth mentioning, sorta, is that I’m trying (unsuccessfully, ;-;) to write a novel. It is waaaaaaaaaaaay harder than it looks.

    [off]

    Writing is like pretty much everything else. It takes practice, practice, and more practice. Learning about the craft helps, from taking English courses (that includes studying literature) to reading writing guides, but there’s no substitute for just doing it, and doing it, and then revising the rough draft, and then revising the rough draft some more.

    Jesusalva has given valuable and much more specific advice about writing in this thread; I just wanted to throw in my two cents.

    Just to put in my two cents, I also had a very unconventional way of writing before, largely due to the fact that English is not my 1st language (or even my 4th for that matter). You’ll get better as time goes on and when you just use it frequently yet correctly. There is no need to be eloquent at first in any language foreign to you, so take time and you’ll get better.

    Also I have bad memories of my previous writing habits. So much so, its recorded on this very site. Although I would still thank MSG (and others) for actually telling me to suck it up and fix it (Previous guides and what not) 😛

    @azyleo your writing (and perhaps your overall grasp of English) has improved dramatically over the years you’ve been on this site. 😎

    Which is quite an accomplishment, considering that nobody on the internet uses grammatically correct English at all (no, not ever, lol)… meaning you also now have a better understanding of our slang and colloquialisms and all of the really horrible abuses of our language that come just as often at the hand of native English speakers as they do those who English is a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc., language. 😆

    Why thank you.

    This is just part of the charm of the internet. You learn stuff that you don’t really intend to most of the times 😛

    Every single Canvas assignment desc: perfect grammar

    Some peeps on RPG Insanity: somehow perfect grammar
