28 Boring Words And What To Use Instead

Another writer and blogger named Jack Milgram shared this lovely infographic with me the other day. So I thought I’d share it with all of you because sharing is caring. I obviously like to think I’m a caring person. Then again, there’s probably a reason why I don’t have many friends in real life and turn to fictional characters to keep me company. On a more serious note, I hope this graphic helps!

Good Grammar Matters In Love

It matters for me at least.

That’s why I don’t have a boyfriend.

My standards aren’t too high. I just want him to care about grammar. Don’t you see how little I’m asking for?

In all seriousness though, Grammarly did their research and created this lovely infographic. It speaks for itself.

Good grammar gets you places. Don’t believe me? Then keep scrolling.

International Literacy Day

International Literacy Day was yesterday, so I’m a bit late to the party.

However, raising awareness about the importance of literacy any day never hurts.

Grammarly has created a lovely infographic about global literacy. They even wrote a blog post about it, which you can find here.

Literacy Day

I hope you are able to help the cause by getting involved in whichever way you can.

First Day Of Camp NaNoWriMo + Infographic

Happy first day of Camp NaNoWriMo to all participating this year.

Happy April Fool’s if you’re into pulling pranks and practical jokes.

Happy first day of April to everyone else.

Of course I totally forgot about my anniversary until WordPress reminded me. Happy anniversary to me, to this blog, to aspiringwriter22.

Logic dictates that if you’re reading this, you’re probably not writing. Unless you’re a multi-tasking god. As you were.

Anyhow the people at Grammarly sent me this lovely infographic on sports and writing. Strangely enough I sort of gave up watching and playing sports for more time to read and write. Enjoy.
