3 common right to write limitations
1. My writing is not perfect
I see this one all the time.
Here is what you need to remember - while you do need to use correct grammar and punctuation and follow editorial guidelines, you are not writing The Great American Novel nor are you writing for a medical journal.
Just write what you know.
2. My life is not perfect
