Communications is the key

March 4th, 2016 by Ken

Today is National Grammar Day.  Today’s the day we show our ignorance of the English language in everything we do or say.

As a professional writer, I show my ignorance every day.   In my printed writings, I often get copies back with misspelled words circled or comments made on my lack of understanding tenses.    But, that’s one of the drawbacks of putting your writing out for public review.

Many people never have to do that.  People seldom write anymore.   Letters have gone out of fashion and most writing is now confined to work and the office.

But – – people do write – – a lot.  They send e mails, the post their thoughts on Facebook, they text, they communicate.  Writing is not dead – – its jut gone where no one has gone before.

I’ve never been a stickler for proper grammar.   I think the important element is communications.   How we arrive at that communications makes no difference to me.

As a professional writer (something my Olympia High School English teacher would never have believed) I try to make my voice heard.   I want readers to understand the content – rather than be concerned with the correctness of the language.

If you’ve read this far, then you will understand that communications is the key to civilization  – – and how we communicate makes little or no difference – – as long as we understand each other.

(If you find any grammatical errors in this posting, keep it to yourself.  Thanks.)
