My grammar is horrible.
I’ve been taking on an online class to help with this and I have to say it’s kinda sad just how bad my grammar truly is. I’ve never been a good rule follower which most likely is my issue with The English language and math formulas. I was an antsy child who has dyslexia and changed from a public school to a private school at a critical time in my education.
By the time I was enrolled in the private school (third grade) the kids had been reading fluently by first grade. well, I was screwed. I had yet to learn the rules of this language i was already speaking, and it was tough. I was always on the “catch up” path when it came to my book learning. Even though I didn’t know the rules I followed others words like a melody. I listened for tone and breath change. I found so much more knowledge within the movement of words and phrases that grammar didn’t seem to matter.
So many rules….ugh.
I enjoy the “Yoda speak” that I tend to have. It makes me feel unique and different. Most people are able to understand my writings on an internal level. I’m sure for those who are excellent grammar enthusiast I’m just super annoying. BUT, I like my misused grammar and punctuation craziness. I enjoy writing what I feel and sometimes a rule of grammar just isn’t wanted with my thoughts.
So with the lessons I am taking….will they change the way I write? Absolutely not, but I will feel more aware of the rules I am breaking and that’s OKAY.
