Manual Labor (BTT)

Writing guides, grammar books, punctuation how-tos . . . do you read them? Not read them? How many writing books, grammar books, dictionaries–if any–do you have in your library?

Nope. Should I? Probably. I actually do NOT enjoy writing. It never came very easily for me. I tend to avoid things I am not naturally good at. My blog is actually somewhat of a personal challenge for me to just write. The only way to get better at something is to practice. I get intimidated a lot reading some of your posts. Those of you who are GOOD writers make me feel like I'm in fifth grade blundering around trying to write. I get my point across though, and for me that is OK most of the time.

I still have a grammar book from my high school AP English class. Geez, that thing is 15 years old! Do those rules still apply??

I enjoy writing in my blog even if everything is not perfect. I do try to get everything "right" as often as I can.

I think you do a fine job with your blog. I enjoy reading your posts very much.

I do like to write, but don't think I'm all that good at it either. Like you, I feel intimidated sometimes by some of the blogs out there.

My husband was just reading over my shoulder and he says we are both silly. :-)
