Figure it might be somewhat relevant to touch on this, considering its one of the key motivations to my recent "drifting away"" from the site. Ive currently posted a fair number of lore and stories from my fictional mythos, and while i will concede to anyone that I am not particularly grammatically gifted i do consider myself to be at least somewhat well spoken and able to put what I wish to say into words, even if said words arent spelled or punctuated correctly or are involved in a rather laborious run on sentence such as this one. But my seeking out of this site (Again coming from the perspective of a new inexperienced member.) has been to receive feedback, positive or negative, about the writing style or narrative of my work. While i certainly got a fair bit of assistance from lovely members referencing me to sources to better my writing, the vast majority of feedback i received entailed improving the grammar of my story, or making it more appealing to the reader. From this point i would like to point out yet again that i acknowledge i am a new member, and my criticism comes purely from a outside perspective, but i believe that grammar and presentation is the refined perfection of writing, and to expect every "newby" to mill through his extensive work he may have written elsewhere to dot every I and cross every T is a tad, and i hate to use the word, pretentious. If I'm seeking advice on my writing I'm looking for advice on how to improve my character development, my scene creation, my descriptiveness and over-descriptiveness ect. With that in mind i wont spend nearly as much time perfecting every subtle punctuation mistake or spending half an hour on a particular paragraph to make it glimmer. to be clear, i completely understand how as literary minds, these mistakes can be jarring, and will shine like a beacon when someone writes im instead of I'm, but I'm merely suggesting it might be turning some writers, myself included, who are looking for more than a reminder to use spell check in their criticism. Apologies for the rambling response, I just figured this was a issue i could bring a different perspective to.
