That said I make an effort to never type anything, and I mean anything, and send it/post it/whatever before at least re-reading it once and hitting it with a spell check. Especially on forums like this where you don't know me personally and all you have to judge me on is what I said and how I say it. I'm always afraid that my weak grasp of spelling will cause me to look significantly less intelligent than I know I am....

OP please edit your post. Add some paragraphs and hit that sucker with a quick spell check. Even I found your post unbearable to read through. I couldn't make it past the first few sentences.

The impact that texting/emailing/tweeting/etc has had on people's ability to actually express themselves in writing scares the living hell out of me...

The extra effort pays off Sparrows, you came through crisp and clear on that one.

I have to admit the thread title dragged me in here and though reading and writing comes easily to me, I couldn't fully deciper the orginal post. It didn't seem right to put much more effort into reading it than was put into writing it.

There's too much out there for anyone to excel at everything but it seems like everyone has something they're better than average at. My downfall is music and arts. I couldn't carry a tune in a bucket if it had a handle. My mind does better with black and white, straight lines, and balance and symetry than with colors, curves, or melodies. I can fix most anything and even fab up specialty tools for the job, but ask me to play you a melody or draw a picture and you'll think I'm wasting your time, which is odd since I really enjoy listening to other people make music - perhaps because I know it escapes me.

Knowing where my talents lie, I spend most of my creative efforts time in those areas but when it happens that I need to work outside my area of comfort, I'll put extra effort into doing the best I can - although you'd still probably run away if I happen to break into song.

OP please edit your post, x2.
