Considering I’m dyslexic, it would be hypocritical of me to stop reading a book for errors given my first drafts have several sprinkled throughout because I simply don’t do enough to catch them. But if the person hasn’t at least run through spell check, I generally draw the line there.


I also sometimes see gesture errors; the way people describe facial expression and ect.

I know what they mean, mostly but some of the errors makes the writing very awkward.

What are your thoughts on that?


Depends. If it happens just once I’ll ignore it and figure it’s just a screw up. If they fairly consistently mess it up then I might try to explain where they went wrong so they could learn. It might just be they don’t know any better. On :wattpad:attpad I try to have a lot of patience. Most of us are still learning.
