Let It Go, Stoney. Just Let It Go.

I posted a blog about how in our society writers are under appreciated and the skill of writing is devalued. Now every day Stoney reminds me that I am appreciated as a writer here at Pole Position Marketing. Again, I didn’t mean that I felt unappreciated here and I have never felt unappreciated here at work, not that I don’t bask in the extra praise I’ve received since then.

The point of the blog was that many people think they can write, but lets face it, they can’t. It takes years of practice and knowledge to get a firm grasp on the English language. You have to know the rules to break them. The ones who are vehemently opposed to paying someone to “write their ideas for them” are usually the worst writers out there.

Stoney, you’re a great writer and I know that I am appreciated here. So, let it go already! Heal thyself.

Everyone needs a writer or at least a proofreader. Here are a few demonstrations of my point:

Even “writers” need a little help sometimes.

The best I’ve seen was a sign for a canned food drive. It read, “Can Food Drive?” It even had the question mark. Hmm?

Let’s hear your best! Or should I say worst?

Max Speed

If the Pole Position Marketing team had a muse—and it does—it would be Max Speed. We love Max’s occasionally off-color, usually amusing and always pointed “Maxisms.” (Maybe “Maxims” would be a better word.) Max gives voice to some of the things we think but, bound by professional decorum, aren’t permitted to say. At least, not out loud.

    Obviously, Katie was trying to be subtle and got caught. How would you take this first sentence in her blog post:

    Lately I’ve been questioning whether I am valued as a writer.

    Ouch!

    Nice cleanup job here Katie, now you’re just telling me to get lost! I like how you tried to “pad” that with the whole “you’re a good writer” thing. I’m onto you. Your subtlety isn’t lost on me. I’m keeping my eyes on you!
