I attended a talk by an author recently which I enjoyed immensely, even though I hadn't read any of this books. I am attempting to remedy that now. I wish I had a book in me to write.
Meanwhile, back on topic.
So while I was there I picked up one of the Centre's booklet listing all the interesting writing courses they offer. "Gosh, these look great. I must do some. I do miss writing," I mused to myself. " You idiot, Stella. You have a perfectly good blog so go back to using it."
Ta-dum! Here I am.
The bad news though is I am here just to have a whinge, it's a punctuation thing. There is a new Aussie film out, good for us. What bothers me, quite a lot, is the poor use of punctuation in the promotional poster that insists on appearing on my yahoo homepage.
Annoyingly I cannot capture the image but the poster heading is:
Theres one in all of us
And if you click on the image, even if you don't, there's a short clip promoting the video.
This irritates me beyond all rational reason. I'm not sure why. Perhaps it's because if they're prepared to spend all that money promoting the film they might bother to employ someone to proofread their advertisements.
Or maybe employ an ad agency that has basic literacy skills.
Just sayin' . . .
Interestingly, on all other versions of the poster they have fixed this. Needless to say I am far too annoyed to even consider going to see this film.
