You're grammer can be poor
Even when you share something
Hello dear readers!
I’m glad you’re here.
We’ve had an influx of new readers lately.
Welcome aboard y’all.
Some of you may have noticed that these daily emails are frequently flawed.
There are typograpical errors.
Really basic ones.
Most of these posts are a first typing / first draft where I’m playing with an idea or phrase.
In a perfect world, some of this will be fun.
In a perfect world, you’ll get a few gems here and there.
But I don’t live in a perfect world. I live in Dartmouth.
And in Dartmouth, things are much like my drafts: A bit messy
For the gramatically sensitive, reading this can be super triggering
Some sentences show up as half thoughts.
Periods think they are commas, commas think they are semi colins.
And the elipses…
They’re convinced that they are question marks.
I blame their committment to gramatical diverstity and linguistic fluidity.
I also blame me.
You see, I care enough to spend time and attention sharing something playful with you every day.
I also care enough to do this imperfectly.
Ideally meow, you’ll be inspired to ‘show me how it’s done’ and share your thoughts daily.
And maybe a bit better than I can.
You’re perfectly imperfect.
You likely have more to say, more to share and more to give than you think.
You’re ideas do not have to be fully formed.
You’re grammer does not have to be perfect.
Your not even requred to know the difference between what you are and something that belongs to you in the present tense.
Care enough to show up creatively daily and others will be interested in seeing where you go.
You are creative.
It’s how you exist.
And worries about grammar, judgement and not being good enough?
They just get in your way.
Those of you who have been around for a while will tell ya that I have a saying about creating new things for people you care about: Love the people who love you. And fuck the fucking fuckers
