Paulo Coelho is human after all

This quote inspires, at least until you spot the missing apostrophe.

Truth to be told, I have become Paulo Coelho’s follower only after I learned that he is on Twitter. But while I haven’t read any of his popular novels such as “The Alchemist” and “The Witch of Portobello,” his solid fan base tells me that the man’s writing skill and style has made him earn the recognition that he now shares with the best authors of the world — anyone who’s into literature knows Paulo Coelho. So rather than feeling disappointed when- ever I see him falter on Twitter and on Facebook, his writing errors tell me that he is just like any other good writer I’ve read about – they make gram- mar mistakes and their works have to be proofread and edited. Yes, in short, they are humans after all.

Paulo Coelho is also a victim of common Twitter mistakes: disappearing apostrophe and misplaced/missing period.


Do you think I forgot something here? Ah, yes. Followers (wink wink) of this blog know very well that I make sure I give credit to the sources of the images that I use here. This time, however, I will give it less priority just to make a point. You see, just like his controversial stories, Paulo Coelho’s stand on intellectual property rights shocked me and so you’ll know what I’m talking about, read his My Thoughts About S. O. P. A.


Before I forget, I can’t tolerate wrong use of ITS and IT’S…especially if you’re not Paulo Coelho. FYI.


Mood: 2/10 Honks! (It was raining hard this morning and I thought Marcus’ class will be suspended. I was wrong. Sun’s out now.)
