I’m Kind Of An Asshole When I Edit Other People’s Writing

by Shelt Garner

I think I may have hurt a young woman’s feelings when I read some of her writing. She’s a much better writer than I am — I’m really bad at spelling and grammar — but I felt her storytelling….lacking.

But I told her up front how harsh I was going to be. I fear that may not have helped anything. I think she got really, really upset at how brutal I was in my comments. But I could not help myself.

I’m brutal to my OWN STUFF and I thought she wanted to be a better writer. So I applied the same metrics to her storytelling as I did my own. But she ghosted me soon after she read my comments.

Oh well. This is a prime example of the “kook tax.” I just have no friends and no one likes me. I sometimes feel I could walk off the face of the earth and no one would notice or care.
