So many things peeve me. Humans—non-writers in particular—have a tendency to test my patience, which is non-existent as you can tell.
While my pet peeves are a never-ending list, my current one is as follows:
When people say one school (university, college, etc.) is more prestigious than another. I’m annoyed anytime anyone claims one school is better or more well-known based upon very biased opinions.
Editors and agents won’t care where I went for post-secondary. On the other hand, the industry does care if writers can write. By write, I mean write well. Like really well.
Everyone needs to stop telling me to go to a specific school solely because the institution has seemingly established a name for itself.
Rant over. Anger absolved…slightly.
