I’m dropping by to give you all some updates:
1. Have been having these long talks and debates with fellow writers (professionals and amateurs) over what’s really good and what is not (after reading some written material of mine or theirs).
It all boils down to a few phrases:
‘I think’ or
‘In my opinion’ or
‘I’d prefer it to be like this’.
The point is to never go in guns blazing and say:
“There’s a grammatical error.”
And later come to know it is just one’s preference.
I always try to ask the writer/author of a text, if I think there is something not very usual among what they have written, by saying:
“You meant to write that, yes?” and such.
If there’s a much better way to convey your doubt(s) at what someone else wrote, which might not go with you, please do share.
I’ll leave you with these words:
“Never take a literary person lightly;
each of us writes for our own reasons and influences.”
