In my blog you'll find captions about love, hate, curiosity, and almost every other emotion we are capable of.
As always,
I hope you like my creations!

Mom?

  1. I love your work, I really do. So please don't take this the wrong way. I'm sure English isn't your first language, but please try to get your usage of past and present tense straightened out. It's tough to read when the tense flips around. "I've read many stories about the remote" okay good so far, "and when you've brought home the new remote..." It doesn't work. Try reading your text without the contractions and you'll see how awkward it reads.

    Again, please don't be discouraged. I LOVE your captions, and eagerly look forward to each day's upload, it's just getting really hard to read them when multiple times you use a contraction of Have (I've, you've, we've, for example) incorrectly.

    This might help: http://www.perfect-english-grammar.com/present-perfect-or-past-simple.html

    Again, please don't take this as an attack, I'm just tying to give a little constructive criticism and advice, from one writer to another.

    Thank you for your hard work!

    1. First of all, thank you for your compliments and I am happy, that you like my captions.

      And, you are correct. English isn't my first language. I've learnt it at school a few years ago, but to be honest studying grammar and tenses of a foreign language wasn't on top of my list back then. Most of my 'knowledge' of the English language comes from watching movies and TV series, playing video games, and of course reading. When I write my captions I use tenses more by instinct than by the book, just like I do with the punctuation.
      But I am willing to learn. And every advice that helps me increase the quality of my captions is very welcomed.

      So, thank you once more for your kind words....and your critisism and advice. I really appreciate it.

      Best regards,
