Insecure Writer's Support Group Day-Writing
It's that time again when one unleashes ones' insecurities to the world about writing. The Insecure Writer's Support Group was created by Alex J Cavanaugh and it has grown by leaps and bounds! Now I have joined this even though I am not a writer.
I have not written a book although I think about writing my mom's life story and one day, I will. I do not feel I have a very inventive mind when thinking up great words that my brother or my ex can use. They can argue a point using their hifalooten words (like that old time slang-not sure if I spelt it right) which leaves me trying to come up with some rebuttal but all I can say to them is "oh yeah!?" I then have an image of slapping them like they are Larry or Curly and I am Moe.
I tend to use the same words over again like Beautiful, Sweet, amazing and then there is this...:). No not this ...:-) but this ...:) I like my smiley face because I don't want to offend people and I want people to know I am talking in jest. I have had a couple of people, in my past send me very nasty e-mails ( none of you- it was before blog land) who became quite offended by what I wrote. One thing we can't write is how we hear these words in our heads.
My grammar probably sucks and I am OK with that as I am not writing a book but I do try to put the commas where they should be and not have run off sentences which I often can do because I just keep writing as I talk and you know what they say...it can be annoying to read something that one keeps writing about nothing...Ooops I did it again:)-see!
On another note, what idiot in the schools across North America thought it was justifiable to stop teaching cursive writing? Yes, we live in a day and age when kids text and never write the actual word out but do these numnuts in charge actually believe this is beneficial for kids? Why are kids being taught to be morons? Teachers must adhere to the curriculum, so they don't have a choice. I just don't understand this at all and the person(s) who made this decision should go back to school to learn the basic A,B,C's. since they checked their brains at the door.
So that is my little rant but at least I did not put it all in some shorthand crap. Oops there I go again:) Have a great day everyone!
