How to Escape the Claws of the Grammar Police
If superfluous commas, misplaced apostrophes (looking at you, it’s/its, they’re/their!), and sentence-ending prepositions make you flinch in horror, you’re in the right place. We take grammar seriously at The Daily Post; my fellow editors and I can often be found quibbling and nitpicking over tenses, modes, and — you guessed it — punctuation. Good writing, though, isn’t merely about adhering to rules. It’s also about knowing how and when to break them. Today, let’s talk about grammar — and the kinds of liberties you might consider taking with it.

Thank you for this. I enjoy language, writing, and reading. I strive to be correct with my grammar. I also, however, acknowledge slang, informal speech, and essentially the huge diversity of humankind which communicates in innumerable ways. Hakuna matata!
All good wishes,
I thought I need to learn this if I want to improve how I write.
I agree-grammar and certain rules just add to the beauty but if the story is gripping and the writer’s native language is not English,some leeway can be given 🙂
