How Do You Not Cringe Every Time You Make A Grammar Mistake?

I simply cannot comprehend how some individuals can make a grammar mistake and not correct it. Do you not cringe at the sight of one? When you are the guilty party, how can you just let it go? Are you too lazy to go back and fix it? Heck, maybe you just don’t care. Maybe, I’m just crazy.

That said, I was debating spelling grammar with an ‘e’ to see how many of you would notice, but then again I nearly had a heart attack when I tried that.

  1. Haha! Yes, I’m the same way. I’ve never understood people who don’t catch even the most blatant mistakes. People get mad at me because I have the habit of correcting their grammar and spelling. But I’m not ashamed. Great post!


    1. Everything you just said is golden. I don’t get it either. Can someone please explain to me how it is acceptable to write a polished report or essay with grammar or spelling mistakes? Glad to hear you aren’t ashamed. Don’t be! Thanks. 🙂


      1. I agree! When I was in high school, I tutored other students in my grade and the grades above me in English. It was amazing how bad their papers were. And I mean… terrible.


      2. I’m assuming you’re now an amazing editor? Haha, I would love to tutor others in writing but reading less than perfect papers would make me die a little inside. Know what I mean? 🙂


      3. Yes, I know what you mean! I cringed inside every time I read one of their rough drafts.

        And I’m not an editor, I’m a physical therapist. Although editing does sound like a fabulous career. Part of me is kicking myself for not pursuing that, but que sera sera.

        I hope I’m decent at editing my own books, but only time will tell once I get an agent and publisher.


      4. Aw, I can totally see where you’re coming from. Sometimes I wish everyone was a better writer so that I wouldn’t have to read horrible rough drafts.

        What an interesting job you have. Although I am sure you would have been and probably are a fantastic editor. 🙂

        Good luck!
