You say that and yet your username isn't even MLA-formatted.I love how loads of people are up on grammar yet have grammatically incorrect usernames. Like The Dark Wizard is one of the only people to have a username that isn't two or three words jammed together with a bunch of symbols and numbers added.
This... reminded me of another pet peeve of mine.I love how loads of people are up on grammar yet have grammatically incorrect usernames. Like The Dark Wizard is one of the only people to have a username that isn't two or three words jammed together with a bunch of symbols and numbers added.
I think that, on a writing website, people should definitely know how to separate different topics into different paragraphs. It gets so clunky after awhile that it just gets quite hard to read. It's especially annoying when you're just trying to read a post, and you begin sloooowly drifting off because of its format... Like it keeps dragging on and on without any natural section break, without any "beats" to speak of. I understand that a lot of people just look at RPing as a hobby, not paying much heed to making their posts overly perfect - which is fine - but problems begin arising when I can't make it through your post to reply because the cadence feels unnatural. Then I have to go back and re-read it a few times, and by that point the entire process of reading has become a chore in it of itself... and this is supposed to be a hobby! I don't want anyone to be offended by this, I'm quite certain it's a common problem. No doubt that I, when I was younger, made mistakes like this, too. You should have seen some of my attempted "novel" ideas, lol. No sense of direction, plot structure, or natural dialogue. I used to meander and go on tangents a lot, can you believe that?? Either way, it's a good rule of thumb to give each individual topic its own paragraph, generally... and try to keep your descriptions concise/to-the-point. I mean, there are exceptions of course. I think longer-winded paragraphs are acceptable if you're still describing a singular focus, like a location, the visage of a character, or some other complicated object that really needs the extra description. Otherwise though, it's just better all around if you learn to get the rhythm for your text. Not to mention the folks who put all of their character dialogue on the same paragraph, too, which can also be a small pet peeve of mine. I fully understand that it's a pretty common mistake, especially among younger writers, but it's sooo difficult to look at when all of those quotation marks are on the same line or even in the same sentence. It breaks the flow a lot, and kind of confuses you as to who's talking and when. So odd to think that there are easy ways and hard ways to read, lol. Oh for the love of all that is good, please kill me, this physically hurts me to write. End my suffering. I'm going to bed, and I'm really sorry.-People who don't know how to use the Enter key (coding wise and writing wise). Please...I need paragraph and proper indentation
Also because now it's utilized as a weapon by some if somebody doesn't like hearing what you have to say, or because they're intentionally oblivious of the ramifications of being so close to somebody. It is basically the modern physical embodiment of the meme "go die," especially if their immune system is thoroughly screwed.hits different now
