    When I read articles on the internet or see writing on TV am amazed how awful the spelling and grammar are. Looks like these freelancers do a quick spell check and submit without taking time to proofread themselves. One tine there was a sentence I could not interpret at all. Spelling is bad even on the crawls on TV. Where are the editors? I have not read item at the top of the thread but I will.

    "The writers Perfect Pen" link was at start of thread.
    I was not impressed by this essay. It seemed to go off on tangents and I don't think the poetry added anything. I did not get the essays purpose and was glad it was short.

    If you want to see just how bad it is, try putting closed captioning on and watch a few TV shows comparing what is said and what is CC'ed.

    1/ You are hoping that your grandmother/parishoners/pupils won't pick up a book you wrote that full of libidinous, salacious sex scenes, with your name on the cover.

    2/ Some authors have more than one pen name. The pen name is a "brand" for a particular genre. Some authors write literary fiction undoer one name, and slushy romantic fiction/SF/westerns. It gives each series/style its own identity.

    3/ J K Rowling used a pen name for her detective fiction to see if she could prove herself to be a writer of more than Harry Potter. The detective novels do get into the best seller lists, so maybe it works.

    4/ You don't want the authorities to know that it is you that is accusing them of genocide.

    5/ To avoid prosecution for obscentiy or whatever.

    6/ Too many John Smiths.

    7/ To add an air or mystery and intrigue. Sometimes foreign names sound better.

    I know that my spelling and grammar are bad, so whenever I have to write something important I use editing services, as I like everything to look professional. However, when I don't have time to write the text by myself, I use a writing service, I have found the best one after reading this article https://www.bestessaytips.com/review_essay.php. In this way, I don't have to worry that my texts are badly written.

    G'day Deb,

    My father used a Sheaffer fountain pen. The only time he didn't was when he needed a pencil, and on a rare occasion when he was in a bank and didn't have his own pen with him. Even so, with decades of daily exposure to his Sheaffer I had the habit of misspelling it simply because I spelt it as it is pronounced -- 'shay-fer'. Now, when I spell it, I mentally pronounce it as 'she-fer'.

    I wonder it Ted Hughes had the same problem.

    Came across this thread almost by accident. I paid attention to this topic because essays are discussed here, and I currently work at online research paper editor. Therefore, what is being discussed here is very close to me. Although I do not agree with everything.

    Thank you for sharing your experience and how best to correct spelling errors. I also often do them, so when it comes to some important writing paper, I order it from professionals. so it was with personal statement writers for residency Spelling errors are not allowed in a personal statement, so my decision was correct.
