Here comes my years of training to spell foreign languages correctly. (…….. for Lexi) Incorrect spelling by people who should know better (writers) annoys me online. My French and Spanish teachers/professors have drilled correct spelling into me, but if I’m a writer, I should know how to spell. A computer doesn’t catch everything and sometimes it makes wrong suggestions.

When I read, I get annoyed by authors who repeat themselves. I get that she’s worried. Her dialogue told me that. Please don’t describe that again. Instead, move on to something a lot more exciting in the narrative.
