Just a quick rant, then I’ll be on my way… This isn’t directed at any one person, but rather at, well, several people.
SPELL CHECK YOUR BLOODY POEM SUBMISSIONS!!!
I don’t mind having to make the occasional typo fix or having to correct some text coding. I can handle that. My problem is when every second or third line has a word spelled completely wrong, or the wrong version of a word used (their/there), or pure nonsense where I can’t even GUESS what the line is supposed to say. I don’t care if you’re the next Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Dickinson, Charles Bukowski, or Maya Angelou. If you can’t be bothered to check your spelling before submitting work, I can’t be bothered to do anything other than click “delete.”
Okay, rant over… I now return you blog readers to your normally scheduled shameless self-promotion.
