It’s been a slow week for me as far as blogging and I want to apologize for being off the radar a little this week. I’ve just been going 90 miles an hour lately, the only time I’ve spent at home is literally to sleep. Last night was my first free night. I celebrated by cleaning off the DVR and drinking an entire bottle of wine by myself (Oops!). I did manage to get some much needed sleep though and am finally starting to feel a little more like myself today!
As a writer, I often find myself being very nervous about this blogging thing. I had promised myself that I wouldn’t take it too seriously but I can’t help it. The more and more followers (Thanks by the way!) I get, the more I feel like I have to be on my toes with my writing.
I know that no one really does this on purpose but the fact that I have caught myself doing it brings me more aware to the fact that writer’s will constantly critique each other. If the grammar is not perfect, they smirk, if there are too many commas in a sentence (something I’m very guilty of) they will sigh, when the post just seems to ramble, they shake their heads. It’s just the way we are.
I never really received any formal training in writing, outside of what I learned in school, it’s just something that I picked up on and enjoyed. That being said, I know that I may make mistakes from time to time and I appreciate all of you not pointing those things out to me!
Anyways, since I have been plagued with writer’s block lately, I decided to have a little bit of fun at other “writer’s” expense and do a little bit I like to call “Don’t quote me”.
This is basically a compilation of signs that use unneccessary quotation marks….you’ll see what I mean.
