Reader Friday: Stop It!
Welcome to Reader Friday, your chance to dive in and make your voices heard! Today we present an opportunity to share a pet peeve you see in novels and film.
Here's mine: I was watching a recent, and forgettable, movie via Netflix streaming the other day, and up came a line of dialogue I can just as well do without, thank you very much. There was a tense emotional exchange, then this:
"It's not about ____! It's about ____!"
How many times have we heard this? I thought so! So I just want to say, Stop it!
What about you, dear reader? Here is your chance to tell filmmakers and novelists alike, Stop doing that!
What's your pet peeve?
