Because the Basic Rules of English Are 4 N00bs! by crazylaura64 Because the Basic Rules of English Are 4 N00bs! by crazylaura64
I've seen so many badly-written fanfics... :iconimhorrifiedplz:

In a lot of cases I've encountered, I've seen authors who honestly think they are good writers, despite the fact that they seem to lack the knowledge of basic English. (Grammar, punctuation, spelling etc.) They THINK they genuinely know how to write. Sometimes, even fucking paragraphs are too hard for them. :|

To be honest, I always knew the basic rules of English (because I actually paid attention in English lessons. :lol:) I was still corrected by other people for certain errors I didn't spot (like spelling mistakes I completely missed), so I'm guilty for minor messups. But it looks like the fail authors actually fell asleep during those English lessons about the basics. Hence, the crappy Twilight and Naruto fanfics. =P

Bottom line: Learn basic spelling and grammar before writing a fanfic. This can also go for writing in general, actually...

OMG! It takes me so long to write a fan fic because grammar and spelling are ALWAYS my main concerns. I usually have to re-read it a couple of times until I'm sure there are no errors.  That's why there aren't many fan fics in my Gallery.

I have an Animal Crossing fanfic on Wattpad, and it has good grammar and spelling!

I hate when you find a fic that has an interesting concept/or plot, and then terrible grammar ruins it.  -.-

Anyone ever seen the fics where it looks like someone sat on the keyboard?

Yeah - they're the absolute worst because I can never figure out what the hell's supposed to be going on. :x

And then they add text speak which is only allowed when a bar acted is reading a text message

I cannot take anyone who doesn't use proper grammar seriously...
