- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Mansplaining. No.
- 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).
