    E-mail vs story writing.


    After about ten years of e-mail, story writing haunts my conscience. The grammar rules in e-mail are used less than grammar than LE. I am not complaining and understand some order must be used. I use grammar and it helps me greatly and I will agree every sentence should have (some order and understanding to it by the words used. The writer said this but meant that sort of thing when writing).

    I am not sure I will ever understanding story writing because I have never been used to it, except by reading a book not writing one. I do believe in some order in writing and understanding, could Wikipedia be of sort of help if I get into trouble trying to explain my thoughts (which happens a lot) and can't? Paul

    Re: E-mail vs story writing.

    You keep referring to having trouble explaining your thoughts. Who are you trying to explain them to? Are you writing for public consumption? Who do you email on a regular basis? Why are you writing stories?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Because I was told that in this forum one writes stories. From two paragraphs to four or five. I just write short sentences and paragraphs to get my point across. E-mail type writing for me. Paul
