Grammar and Me

Written By: Jess - Apr• 21•14

Note: I was worried about not writing enough for this blog and then realized that it doesn’t have to be very long. This one is short and sweet. :) 

I suck at grammar. Always have. I didn’t get it in high school and in college I had completely given up because I still couldn’t get it.

Here’s a pretty good representation of how I felt whenever someone (teacher or friend) tried to explain it to me:

Granted, some of it has started to sink in slowly.

However, in the past year and a half I’ve started to care and have really tried to work on doing better with it. Turns out when you want to write a book and have it make sense you need to be somewhat decent at grammar. For the past year I’ve been buying grammar books and apps. I’ve also been making flashcards that I take everywhere (whether or not I’ve actually taken them out of my bag and memorized them yet is an entirely different matter). 

The good news is I have noticed that I’ve gotten better at it. So there’s hope for me after all!

Here’s all the books I have on it, plus some that go into how to revise (with one or two just ordered and on the way):
