So I didn’t actually write a new post today, I went back and edited an old one instead. Writing this blog is to my professional writing, what laps and running with the dogs is to racing. Just like I watch videos of myself swimming to correct form, and keep track of times and distances run; I improve my writing by reviewing older posts and playing “spot the broken sentence.”
I no longer have a professional editor to hide my sloppy grammar edges, but even if I did or do again, it is important to me to sharpen my sentence skills. Sentences are my tools. I love a well crafted sentence perhaps even more than well cooked food. I want to bake organic morsels of perfectly blended word selection, syntax and punctuation.
That being said, it is now time for me to sleep, so if you wish to be entertained, feel free to peruse old blogs and see if you can spot the differences in the ones I have repaired.
Or for even more fun, find my errors and tell me about them in a comment…in writing as in racing, I really can use all the help I can get.
