    Welcome to the forums. I have edited your title to something more acceptable and moved your thread to the appropriate forum. I have also corrected the punctuation and capitalisation in your text.

    I don't help with questions outside of the public forums. If you want help, post your stories on this forum.

    Note my corrections to your post above (spacing and punctuation).

    As bhaisahab said, you can post short excerpts of your stories here in the Editing and Writing Topics section and someone might look at them. Did you write these stories yourself? Did you write them simply for pleasure?

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I understand you but I think you have misunderstood the purpose of this forum. This is not a free proofreading and editing service. If you are writing books for children (especially if you are hoping to get them published), you need to pay a professional proofreader/editor.

    As I said before, you can post short excerpts here, particularly paragraphs or sentences where you have a specific concern about the correctness of your English and we will be able to look at them.

    Ok, thank you. I get it now.

    Question: why are you correcting capitalization? I know that some letters should be capitalized but when I write quickly, I don't care if it is C or S. It is not a big mistakes.

    Just correct the form of the sentence.

    You might not care but we do (and you should).

    emsr2d2, I care about the language, don't take it as an offensive, what I meant was most pp. write the same way and it is okay,it is not that big mistake. If the form of the sentence is correct, then it is fine.

    Question: Do you still think it is a big mistake to write without capitalization especially when we have a conversation????
