In honor of National Grammar Day … it IS “March Fourth” after all … do you have any grammar books? Punctuation? Writing guidelines? Style books?
More importantly, have you read them?
How do you feel about grammar in general? Important? Vital? Unnecessary? Fussy?
I actually started a blog in order to help me improve on my writing skills, specifically for work. I chose reviewing books since reading is something I love to do and I would be able to practice on a weekly basis. I realise I have to read my reviews or writing out loud. I am so much better in noticing my mistakes.
For me it is not vital for everyone but I have realised bad grammar drives some people crazy, lol. My favourite well known so wrong but it looks so right :-) is alot, I like to read alot, I like books alot, lol - but I have drove enough people crazy over this so I now will be correct and write a lot. Another for me is then or than.
I have to say though, if I notice bad grammar, spelling mistakes etc in books and it is consistent through out, I am annoyed, that is what an editor is for, spell check or even friends, I have gave up on an author due to it being so bad and they are actually quite popular.
So how do you feel about grammar?
