I read back the blog post I wrote yesterday, and the sentence structure is shockingly bad. I’m prone to passive writing, and equally prone to run-on sentences. That blog post is pretty much a master class in shockingly bad writing (structure, not necessarily content). I thought about going back and correcting it, but it seems a little disingenuous given the post was off the cuff as it were, just a rambling dialogue with my own brain.
It does highlight something I’ve been getting worse at over the years – proof reading. I’m getting lazier. I used to write and read everything back a couple of times, these days I’m lucky if I read it while I’m writing it. This increases the number of incorrect word endings I use (-ed instead of -ing, -ing instead of -s, etc.) along with just missed out words.
I must try harder.
