Will you tell me what’s wrong?
You are a reader. A well-read and informed one. There are
hundreds millions of articles on the web and thousands of blogs. You invest your precious time here when you stop by to read a post on this blog.
You read a few opening lines and then you spot an error.
What will you do? Will you be willing to comment or send me a private message telling me my mistake?
If you won’t, why won’t you?
Either you are reading or you are scanning. If you are scanning and you don’t notice – I understand. However, if you are reading word after word and then you don’t tell me, what do I understand? Is it about time? Is it about why should I? What’s in it for me? What would she think of me? Did you think, “I am not perfect myself so it’s okay. We all make mistakes.”?
Let me stop you right there.
I am open to constructive criticism. Don’t be rude but if you have the time, tell me what did I miss? Comment, private message, text or email. Did you think the closing was rushed? What can I do to improve? Was there a grammatical error? English is not my first language so there can be errors. I can learn a few more nuances. Can’t I?
Will you tell me what’s wrong? If not, why not?
