Fight The Grammar Bully!

English is a complex language. Especially for the majority of global citizens who are found to be semi-lingual. The complexities of English language widen considerably, as the spoken language and written literature follow different formats.

Grammar is a benchmark for most writers. Most of the times, while writing we make this mistake of revising our written content over and over again. Being sure about writing grammatically correct sentences consumes a lot of time.

Understanding grammar rules are not easy and most of us never got it correct at school either. But what can change for the majority of us is:

TO NOT BE AFRAID TO WRITE INCORRECTLY!

Because, more or less, most of us have to write at some point or the other. The mindset to write grammatically correct content shifts our focus from writing about the crux or core of the topic and instead, maneuvers our conscious to check for tense errors, wrong plural/ singular word usage, missing articles, and sometimes inappropriate use of punctuation.

It can get very overwhelming. But, don’t be afraid to start an article with ‘But’ or ‘and’ or ‘because’. Don’t be afraid to write shorter sentences or longer ones for that matter. Don’t be afraid to use the wrong punctuation. Don’t be afraid to write.

A maturity, to know the know-hows of writing will establish itself only when writing happens like a habit. Conditioning our minds to focus on spreading our thoughts, ideas, and musings, to the world, should hold greater value than incorrect grammar.

In psychology, the concept of communication apprehension explains individuals’ fear or angsts about communicating with others. Well, writers, at large are communicating with a blank document on their computers;

The apprehension likely creeps in, unknowingly. For all types of writers, making a mistake grammatically is an abhorrent idea.

This article is not here, debunking the idea of writing correctly per se. It is here to deliver the underlying truths of writing fears. The grammar bully is in our psyche, which surfaces just when an article has been started.

Start writing to let go your apprehension and to fight the grammar bully. Write because it matters. Some ideas and thoughts are better left written than said.
