Tried to Join a Writing Site

Today, I took a writing test, to join an online writing site. The last part of this exam was to select proper punctuation in sentences, which goofed me up. An applicant is required to get seven questions right, out of ten. I think that I ended up with six right answers, so they didn't accept my application. Darn it! Oh well, there are two more sites that I'll be trying my luck with. Am I a talented writer? No, not really. Do I love to write? Heck, yah! Photo:NOT MINE, Borrowed from Pixabay

No, I don't have this. But, the test was on their site, it took about 15 minutes. Then, I was allowed to take it over again, but still didn't make it.

Guess what? I tried one of those she practically called me an iliterate person and when I checked her out she could not spell one thing right at all saying no more than that and not mentioning the site either i thought I am not trying that stuff again. I love to write and I don´t think I am bad writer but she said I was one and I laughed when I saw all the mistakes that she made herself. Hope you find a good place and not one of those twenty questions at a time one.

They asked twenty questions, to see if I would knew how to punctuate a sentence. What a joke!

@kobesbuddy Wonder if the person who made the questions knows how to punctuate as well and put apostrophe´s and so on. Hope you find somewhere else I really do. I was polite and I did not say a thing as I would have said sometthing well won´t put it here.

@lovinangelsinstead21 It made me feel inferior, while that's not a true perspective of who I am.

They didn't explain hardly anything about their writing requirements. Do you want to write for us? Then, they don't mention what I'd be writing!

I think I have taken this kind of test to be accepted in a writing site a few years ago. I was not accepted. I think that is the same site you are talking about but I can´t remember the name.

I did not know there were any writing sites left. Is this one new? Is it Vocal? I flunked a writing test a few years ago. It involved the words lay and laid. I checked online and there were hundreds of comments about the test and the words and I could not figure out the answer. I got it wrong. There are a few verbs that I am fuzzy on.
