These are errors in thread titles currently in the first 2 pages of the Writing Issues subforums: Exert instead of excerpt Pendent instead of pendant (yes yes, barely acceptable, I know ) Alot instead of a lot Using "good" as an adverb Politically correctness instead of political correctness What is your thoughts instead of what are your thoughts Conscious instead of conscience Characters race instead of character's race Two Character instead of Two Characters Medevil instead of medieval Publushed instead of published That amounts to 11 errors in 350 thread titles. While that's only 3%, on a forum full of writers the errors stick out like a sore thumb. And these are the thread titles, not the threads. I hesitated starting this thread. I'm setting myself up to be attacked for every typo I ever miss correcting from now until the thread is forgotten. I'm sure I have more than a 3% typo rate but hopefully I fail to correct less than 1% after proofreading my posts. I know there are people here whose English is their second language. (I forgive you.) I know typos happen, I make them all the time. (I forgive me and you.) My point is not that people here make too many typos. Our keyboards make us do it and proofreading doesn't guarantee catching them. But the reason I am posting the thread is to suggest if writing is your thing, keep in mind your posts represent your work. It's akin to using bad grammar in a job interview. It might not go over well. At a bare minimum, if you aren't using some kind of spellchecker you should be. I'm just trying to be helpful, so please don't attack the messenger. And feel free to point out my errors, I learn from mistakes.
