Do we tell somebody not to write if they are not so good writer?
I was scanning through the forum. and I got a thread criticising writers who are not able to write properly (due to the lack of understanding of English language). I believe that what to write and how to write both are different things. Some writers are good at the craft, and some are good at having ideas. Is this a right thing to tell somebody you should not write as you are not good at the craft? My all time favourite writer Ernest Hemingway said once,
"It's none of their business that you have to learn how to write. Let them think you were born that way."
There is no problem if you tell a not so good writer that his articles need improvement if you tell it in a nice way. I am not so good in English language but I'm good at having ideas. I lack skill so I need someone to give me suggestions on how I can improve my articles but of course I don't need anyone to tell me to stop just because I am not good enough.
(How is my grammar?)
Ok, you mean to critique them If asked. Yes, that can be really helpful.
