The gift of good writing

Like several million other people, I’m a huge fan of Grammarly on Facebook.

The posts are funny and thought-provoking.  So are the comments:  the clever repartee, the puns,  the indignation, the tears (both kinds).

If reading is a crucial part of your existence, if you’ve had a big crush on the English language since childhood, and if you like to see apostrophes in the right place, then I think you’ll like this place, too.  Or maybe you’ve known about Grammarly for ages and are wondering why it took me so long to mention it.

Well, I’ve been busy.

Too, it took me years to come up with the brilliant idea of not writing about me and my books in every single blog post.  Only a week ago, I launched the first of what I hope to be a series of posts not about me.

Today’s is not about me, either, though it may sound like it.  For instance, I’ve fought the urge to make a list of my pet grammar peeves or my grammatical insecurities or the parts of speech I have to look up every single time. (You, however, are welcome to contribute your thoughts and experiences.)

Instead, in the spirit of the holiday season, I present good news for grammar lovers.  Yes, Virginia, good writing makes good economic sense, as this info graphic demonstrates.  You can find out more about it here at the Huffington Post.
