My name is Elle Vue, I am 23 years old, and I have a BA in English Writing from Loyola University New Orleans. In my free time I am an avid reader of 16th & 19th century literature, Greek classics, 1920s novels, and all philosophy. I also enjoy ballet, French, fashion, and painting (though I am not a great painter).

  1. I think it’s called a “typo.” Not sure if you’ve ever heard of one but it’s when you make a mistake when typing (in America the “e” is next to the “r”). I hope you found this clarifying!
    If, on the other hand, you’re asking what I classify as cliche writing, it is writing that revolves around overused tropes and lacks originality.


  2. Oh dear, I am sorry!
    Laughing, but sorry…
    I feel as though I have been severely chastised, a dozen lashes with a damp earthworm.
    And I do very much appreciate the information on the layout of the QWERTY keyboard.
    I heartily agree with your classification, and hope that this comment does not fall into that category.
    Thank you for the smiles.
