10 Resolutions for the Grammatically Challenged

  4. I will show my writing to someone capable of proofreading it before I publish it.
  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. I will, however, always read over what I’ve posted – anywhere – to catch typos before they see the light of day.
  8. I will read fewer comments on social media, lest I see grammar glitches even worse than the ones I make.
  9. I will read more good books which model excellent English usage.
  10. Im going reade ovur zeez extra speshul poynts and tayke dems wit a granes uv salte.
