I see this so many times on writing forums. This is a short story what I wrote or This is a short story I wrote. I don't know about you guys, but it really annoys me for some reason. Shouldn't it be: This is a short story I've written? or I've written a short story. For some reason the first example seems as if a child is writing it, and when I read that first sentence, it really sends shudders up my spine. Maybe I'm just being picky.
