I read through most of this conversation, and I absolutely have to agree with you, Shery. The best writers in history, as most of you must know, constantly broke the norms of writing- not in the manner that they created their own rules, but use artistic license to stylize existing ideas in an attempt to convey and express new meaning.
I used to worry so much about making sure everything was perfect in my writing before moving on- but why? Have someone correct your writing that knows your writing style. Many of the times I had my writing proofread, they ended up changing the initial meanings and expression I intended to convey, again, taking away the creative elements, making it something more generic, which of course nobody likes to read.
For the grammar and spelling quislings, you should know that nothing will throw me out of a story or interrupt the flow of a person attempting to make a point on any subject than improper spelling and grammar. There are innumerable books from which you can learn to do better.
But a professional works very hard to minimize those, especially in a forum like this that has an automatic spell check program included right in the forum.
Susan, Do not let anyone or anything dissuade you from going after your dream. Write from your heart fueled by your passion and the rest will follow. Just as an after thought. When a writer receives a new job, it is very important to understand what is required and execute accordingly.
When you get distracted, that means you are missing the point of the article. How can you do a proper job if you are missing the crux of the matter. That is what I believe happened with my question and your answer, though I will take it as constructive criticism. I would think that not having the correct grammar and punctuation could keep you from getting published as a writer.
Come on people do yourself a service and proof read before sending in your article. It then might get published faster.
She might not correct it properly. Then where would you be. Out of luck, right? U mus b fun at partyz. As many have already said, great ideas and good writing are two different topics.
Matha had no business putting someone down the way she did. Perhaps she will have a better understanding of what being picked on feels like. You should show some desency and apologize Matha.
Hence, logging off and getting on with writing. You finally figured out the way to promote proper grammar and writing within the US education system!
Troll the webs for erroneous comment mistakes and verbally stake your victims to the ground with your superior use of the English language! You are really making a difference in this world. My children call me a grammar Nazi, and any misused word jerks me right out of that willing suspension of disbelief. That might be what happened.
BTW, youse guys—usage ought to be correct in narrative, but the dialogue absolutely cannot be perfect. They sound AS IF manufactured twits. And try not to be so hard on each other.
And even ignorance is forgivable. I look forward to hearing from you. Writing is hard work. As writers we must remember this and command top dollar for the time and effort put into the art of creation on any level, whether it be essay, short story, or novella.
Everyone is so triggered. Just smile and wave. She holds no significance in your life. As a proofreader I can agree with the sentiment, but you have to get it right yourself. And the high-handed tone is, yes, too much. Think before you judge. It was a comment for goodness sake. Face it, auto correct.. Please fell free to point out my mistakes it is makes you happy. I was about to have a stroke before I read your reply.
Although I do not agree with your views, I could not very well disagree with them either. My point…There is a correct manner in which to speak to others which is polite and thoughtful, and you will be more than likely to get your point across in a more favorable fashion.
We all make mistakes, obviously even you.. Auto incorrect may be the cause of such errors. So next time perhaps you should seriously take into consideration, proof reading your own comments…Just a thought…. You talk a big game for someone simply commenting on a blog post. If you were in fact such a well educated and highly adorn writer, you would be doing just that, writing. Not belittling someone who was asking a simple question. So keep to yourself.
And with an attitude like that, you never will. The best bet is to check the submission guidelines for the individual journals.
I believe a few of them accept international submissions, and submissions can be made online; you might want to check with individual magazines first, though. Hello Bamidele, How does writing for magazines and blogs work? Martha, with all due respect, get your head out of your butt. Snobbery is dull, no matter how well-written it is.
Dear All, I have read all the comments and I can find one or two typos or other grammatical error in each of the comments, including mine if you look properly. Well, this makes it perfect. This is absolutely how it should be. Either from the teacher, the pupil or the writer or the editor, you may find one or two errors, and it is just fine. This thread has served me well this evening; a much appreciated distraction from real-world events. We all need acceptance and validation at times and not only for parking.
No One is superior than another here. I DO know however, that as writers, we ought to keep topics as positive as we can. That is- if we wish to contribute, with our works, in a positive way. Be good to you,. Little language should not be a hinderance to your passion. Thank you very much for this great post Bamidele, always a pleasure to read. Thanks for the post. I had no idea about magazines that pay so much.

My question is i have a payoneer account but how do i get pay via all the platform of freelance writing on the site you just gave us because most of them pay via paypal account and one cannot withdraw from it in Nigeria.
Looking forward to hearing from you. It is really noteworthy. Here are other magazines that pay more: Hi Bamidele, Thanks for sharing this information. I am amazed that writers get paid with that much amount of money per write up. Can you explain why? Also can you please post articles about from where the Indian writers can get high paying jobs like these? Just about every English-speaking country has its own dialect and nuances, so even English writers sometimes have difficulties writing for countries other than their own.
It truly has nothing to do with who you are or where you are from. The best advice I can give you is to try to make some friends online you can communicate with regularly to learn how native speakers use the language. Hi I am muhammad ather from Pakistan.

Anyways, to date I have written two novels both self published on line and am working on two other books that are nearing completion.
But that is another story…. My question is if you submit to more than one magazine do you have to let them know that you have duel submissions and what if both want to publish the work? Check out the guidelines by each. I meant to say hit the submit not it the submit; and sorry for the ignorance not sorry the ignorance.
