And, thus, this post! Well, I had to thank him!
A tiny instance of my ignorance — I was in love with the ‘ellipses’, the three dots (…) that I would love using anywhere and everywhere, without knowing its actual use! My ‘guide’ pointed it out to me and how I was embarrassed! What a fool I had been! Out came my grammar book, which became my bible since then and opened my eyes to the blunders I had been committing!
We all need a critic who not only points out our flaws, but also helps in keeping our feet planted firmly to the ground, lest we make a complete fool of ourselves. And, I am so glad to have found just the person who pointed out my flaws, praised my writing if and only where needed and inspired me to better myself and use the talent that I have been blessed with to the best of my ability.
So, a big ‘thank you’ to you, my dear friend, philosopher, guide! The journey has just begun, so this is not a farewell speech or anything of the sort. It is just something that has been brewing inside my mind since quite some time. Thank you for your critiques and suggestions and also for your technical aid! What would I do without you?!
