It's been one of those days that my mind has been else where, and it's been showing in my writing. I was doing one of my articles for Hire Writers, and got a whole lot of garbage that I lack the flow of my writing and that it looks like my original language isn't English. I didn't know my English was as bad, I wouldn't have taken it personal as if the job wasn't $5, and I spent hours writing it. It was an article about a router, one that I've googled to no avail, and them wanting a 6 hour turn around for 500 words. So to just be rated a 1/5 of 5 just bothers me a little bit. Anyway the insanity of today is what has my mind unable to formulate a thought correctly. I was talking to my mother and after her 'lady test' to found some kind of growth or something. Which I'm hoping isn't anything serious. Followed by my husband who went to the hospital tonight, it ended up being something we thought was serious but wasn't. But my mind was already elsewhere and I don't know why on earth something little like this bothers me, other than the fact I thought I was a reasonable writer. Sure my grammar needs a bit work, but I don't want this to come back and bite me that nobody's going to look at me as a writer on the site because they don't think I know English or that it's my native language.

I can sure see why your mind was elsewhere and maybe that was the only issue with your writing on that article.

Maybe, I just took it bad to hear, that I have no concept of English, and that I am probably not an English speaker. I don't know why it offended me as bad as it did.

Sorry you had such a bad day. You had a lot on your mind so that doesn't help. Glad your husband is okay and I hope that everything will come back good for your mom. I hope you got some rest and that today will be a better day for you.

I hope so too. I think it was obvious I had more on my mind than I thought.

Sorry to hear about your husband. Hope he is feeling better. I barely ever do writint sites anymore but when I used to, some articles would be a real struggle so I do understand. Hope you have a better day tomorrow.

I don't really care about how much I got garbage over it now, I realize that all my other articles were fine. I think I was more upset because I was tired.

It happens with all. We need a peaceful mind to concentrate on writing. I hope the coming days will be better for you. No need to underrate you, you have an excellent command over English.

I think I was more offended in case the person tried to report my account for assuming I wasn't speaking English.

I think your english is just fine. I am not native english speaker but I can understand your writing just fine.
