Because I’m tired of having to get cranky at people on Twitter, here are some Things You Should Never Say when I am around. Or preferably, at all. Good luck!
“But creative writing can’t be taught.”
“I hate [insert minority group here] because [insert reason here].”
“It’s not poetry if it doesn’t rhyme.”
“…but animals are so tasty!”
“The government is right to cut arts funding — we don’t need artists!”
“I’m supporting anyone but England.”
“I don’t buy clothes from charity shops because someone might have died in them.”
What are the things no one should say around YOU? Answers in the comments box!
