Before I had any right to dismiss Twihards or criticize the psychologically unhealthy relationship model that Bella Swan and Edward Cullen present, I felt obliged to read the books. So I did. All four novels, one novella, and an incomplete document in portable format. The content lived down to my expectations, but I was unprepared for how poorly crafted the saga is.

Question with 109 notes

Anonymous said: I'm really glad you're back but I'm rather concerned. Though your latest post was funny and snarky it ended with "Isn't that a charming meet cute?". Your "sentence" needs help.

I’m not sure what you mean. Maybe I have authorial blindness, that is to say I cannot see the mistake because I continue reading what I know I meant and unconsciously edit my writing (which is a major reason you should let other people help you edit).

Otherwise, I suspect you are unfamiliar with the term “meet cute” and maybe you see a weird verb and adjective with something distinctly missing.

In any case, I’m going to take this opportunity to poll readers. Should meet cute/meet-cute be hyphenated? I debated it for about five minutes before opting out.
