A note to authors
 
There have lately been some wonderfully creative and descriptive stories on this board. However, the reading experience is somewhat diminished by the lack of proper writing. What I mean is correct spelling, punctuation, use of quotation marks, paragraph breaks etc. Writing is hard work and I don't wish to make the task any tougher. But to be honest I had to reread passages in a particular story several times just to keep straight who was saying what. Your stories would be so much better and readable with proper writing style.

I've proof read my stories over and over and still there are errors that get through and I don't wish your writing to be an exercise in English composition. I applaud your efforts and hope to read more in the future.

Thanks for this post Obo. As a long time reader of this forum, I would also like to hereby mention that if any writer needs someone else to do their proof reading, I am at your service. This is the least I could do to contribute to this forum that has provided me with such awesome stories.

Thank you both for the posts.
I would like to second the offer of proof reading. I'm a bit of a grammar nazi myself, though as English is not my native language I can't guarantie a complete error free result. :rolleyes:
