I was thinking about writing a post about the basic writing rules, and the impact that skipping them could have on your writing. Obviously, we all know these rules, we just tend to forget them, ignore them, or decide it’s too much effort to follow them.
Instead of a long and tedious lecture on the basics, I thought these pictures supported my arguments quite nicely…
Grammar. If you didn’t notice that grammatical errors in your blog posts tend to make people laugh at you, just wait. The Grammar Police will be sure to overload your comment thread to remind you.
Punctuation. Please, let’s save Grandma.
Spelling. Other than being beyond annoying, spelling errors bring out the Spelling Police…infinitely more vicious than the Grammar Police.
Vocabulary. If you intend to use gargantuan idioms in an attempt to utilize your extensive vocabulary, please refrain from accentuating your idiocy.
