There is a day for everything, but I could not let this one slip by unnoticed.
MAY 31st is national speak in complete sentences day. I think this means writing in complete sentences, too.
I know I’m a day ahead of the official schedule, but since tomorrow is also Memorial Day, so I thought I’d jump ahead. You don’t mind, do you?
I’m not sure most people know what a complete sentence should look like. What parts it should contain. Most of the people with whom I interact — not on WordPress where we have a shockingly high level of people who understand grammar and punctuation — but the rest of the world where no one knows what an adverb is or why they should avoid their overuse.
What’s a clause anyway?
How could they know what an adverb is when they don’t know what a verb is either? For that matter, they don’t know what are an object, subject, clause, or the difference between a semi-colon and a comma. Okay, that’s a tough one, so I’ll skip that one.
Imagine if, for one day, everyone used complete sentences! What if we used proper punctuation, used semi-colons
Let us, for one moment, imagine what would happen if we all turned off auto-correct? What if most of the things we wrote were what we truly meant to say and not what we think everyone wants us to say?
Okay, let’s not get carried away.
