Undoubtedly this is something I myself have been harping on about (I wrote a whole story called "Smashwords Writers Duel", and YES as shamefull plugs go this is a bad one. Though not as bad as the one in my current story "26 Minds on Standby" Part 17 entitled "The Mighty Quinn vs the Shameful plug"), who needs perfect writing if the said writing is regurgitating old or run-of-the-mill material. I'd much prefer to read something original (even if its not particularly good) than read something word perfect that has been written before in a dozen different ways. Surely, originality should come first.
The ideas and beliefs here are like a breadth of fresh air, breathed into the inkwell of a tired old pen that refuses to write in a different style or context. After all, the first stories where told by word of mouth or drawn upon cave walls. And I'm sure that within these stories the odd comma or full stop was misplaced or indeed forgotten about completely. However, it still did not make the story any worse.
So I applaud Sandra D Paul for bringing light to the minds of those who think writing is for those who have mastered the language. For as this short piece shows, nothing could be further from the truth.
