Grammar Lesson #1

NaPoWriMo Notebook

I know,

I am not an English Major,

but this much I do know:

You cannot begin every sentence with an and, but, or so.

Even capitalized.

Every once in a while, maybe.

But every single one.

No!

So, Every now and then.

Okay.

The grammar police do not scare me.  Hell No.

But every once in a while, write correctly,

Even

if it is just for show.

  1. I’m smiling because I usually try to write as I speak, but I do on occasion, use my schooling to write properly.
    How’s that? (grins)

  2. But creativity means that rules are broken! And if you never break rules, you degrade into an algorithm. So over-regulation kills creativity. :-)

    • ha ha But all you have to do is remove the first word and the sentence stands on a firmer foundation. So the crutches we use in speech do not need to be added to sentences, because they flow together without pause. And they do not need to be added to fill awkward moments that do not exist when you read. but, yes that is an excellent argument. :)

      • :-) If you break the rules all the time you will end up in ruins. They are there for a good purpose. They are accumulated insights and experiences. But you need to know when to depart (I insist on the “but” at the beginning of this sentence! :-)). Wisdom is the art of knowing when to break the rules and as we become older and more experienced, we get better at it.
