Hieeee and welcome to my home on the internet.
Now we know that I love writing and in the few months that I have been writing there are a few things that I have commonly heard. And to some extent, it is straight up annoying. So here’s a list of seven things that are mildly amusing and somewhat offensive.
1.*something happens* Me – I don’t know how I feel about this. Friend – Don’t go writing a blog post about this.
Touche. Firstly, don’t tell me what to do, Samantha. And secondly, shut up. It irks me when this happens. I will write what I want (like I am doing it now, in your face Samantha). Frankly, don’t ever tell this to a writer, it’s just demeaning and discouraging.
2. Can you teach me how to write?
Okay, this is not annoying, but it is still something you shouldn’t say to a writer. If you want to learn there are a lot of classes online you can take up. We have never been taught how to write, it’s just something we do and yes, we might take classes to enhance our skill but no, I will not teach you how to write so you can impress this guy/girl. For us, writing is a kind of a religion and you treating it so casually can be offensive.
3. People – Are you in love? Me – No. People – But you write like you are.
It’s called fiction for a reason. And maybe I am in love but it’s still none of your business. The line between my personal life and my blogging life is very thin but there are a few things I don’t want everyone to know. I have no problem if a friend asks me this. But I have had strangers ask me this and I am sorry but it’s still none of your business.
4. *Me makes a grammatical error while talking.* People – And you call yourself a writer? (in a mocking tone).
No Samantha no. First, we got to the same school and have the same classes so if you can make mistakes why can’t I? Second, I am human, Samantha. Not the God of english literature. And even Gods make mistakes, he made you after all.
5. So you still have your little blog? *judgingly*
Yes, Samantha. And I have been blogging for more than a year now. You hear that Samantha? A year. Longer than any of your relationships ever (kidding). And you would know I still do, if you read what I wrote instead of just double-tapping when it comes on your feed, Samantha.
6. You write so well. Aww! *And they haven’t actually read it.*
I am sorry but if you’re one of these kinds of people, we would never get along. This is just rude, plain rude. Why say it when you don’t act on it? Like straight up, I have had people tell me how much they love my work, but they don’t follow my blog. I see you making fake claims, Samantha. I don’t care about the numbers but if you like it so much why are you not following? Basically, the compliment is not genuine and trust me, I don’t need your compliment.
7. Give us a message/quote/caption. You’re a writer after all.
As much as I value you asking this from me. This suddenly puts me under pressure. Like I have to prove that I am worthy enough to be a writer. And this is not annoying, but it is one of the MOST common things I hear. And if you don’t like the captions/quotes I give you, it just makes me feel like a shitty person who is not good at anything.
Okay, there you go. I am sure there are many things I have missed so comment down below and tell me. Also, Samantha is fictional and I don’t mind my friends telling/asking me this. And this is purely for humorous purposes and is not written to offend anyone. So if you’re offended, stop being a Samantha.
Okay, I got to go study for my computer practical which is tomorrow. So byeee. And don’t forget to subscribe/follow if you don’t already.
My last post is here.
And until next time……
