Short Academic Essay Addressing Discussion Post G

DISCUSSION FORUM TOPIC 3 OF 4: MY GRAMMAR GAFFE CONFESSION(S)

Your post is worth 100 points. One point will be deducted for each grammatical error in your post. No one-word or one- to two-sentence responses! Follow the length and content requirements specified below.

Use this forum to discuss your own experience with grammar: what you’ve said or written; your most embarrassing grammatical moment or grammatical error; a red-penned paper returned by an English teacher or professor identifying your errors; or an “I never knew that” moment. Your post needs to reflect involvement on your part as a writer composing a short academic essay addressing the topic provided, not someone “dropping in” on this forum and offering a two- to four-sentence response in passing.

Provide a short, succinct, edited statement in an 8- to 10-sentence paragraph.

Post your past and recent grammar gaffe confession(s) here.

    1. Perhaps you misspelled a word in an email. Tell us about it.
    2. Maybe you embarrassingly said, “We have to evaporate because of the hurricane” or something similar.
    3. Maybe you never knew until you wrote a college paper that “a lot” is two words instead of one (“alot”). Here’s your space to share your recent and past grammar gaffes.

Circulated Humiliation (165 words)
July 5, 2010

My most embarrassing grammar gaffe was self-publishing my first book. I had an editor, but she turned out to be worse with grammar than I was. Not only did she miss almost all of my typos, but also added on to the “mess” I had already created. I mistakenly did not proofread my proofreader’s work.

When I lent the first edition to my then-girlfriend, she returned it saying, “I absolutely loved the story, but cringed at all the grammar mistakes. Please, fire your editor. It took all my will power not to take a red pen to those pages.” Needless to say, I pulled the book from the shelves and fired my editor/proofreader.

I then proceeded to spend the next year rewriting. Now I have released an unedited second edition because I have no editor (at the moment) and have lost all objectivity with the piece. Never fear: the unedited second edition now comes with a bad spelling and typos warning label.
