10 Resolutions for the Grammatically Challenged

  1. I will check in the dictionary if I’m not sure how to spell a word.
  2. I will buy a book on grammar and thus no longer have ignorance of the rules as an excuse.
  3. I will follow many grammar blogs – especially this one!
  4. I will show my writing to someone capable of proofing it before I publish it – anywhere.
  5. I will not misuse “its” and “it’s” which is writing’s greatest sin.
  6. I will not beat myself up over typos – accidental errors – of which we’re all guilty.
  7. However, I will always read over what I’ve posted – anywhere – to catch many typos before they escape.
  8. I will read fewer comments on social media lest I relearn bad grammar.
  9. I will read more good books which model excellent English usage.
  10. I am going reade theze poynts and tayke dems withe a granes uv salte.
