Blogging from A to Z Challenge: Theme Reveal 2021

Ill-fitting grammar are like ill-fitting shoes. You can get used to it for a bit, but then one day your toes fall off and you can’t walk to the bathroom. ~Jasper Fforde

As the image conjured by the above quote lingers in my mind – and perhaps yours too – allow me to introduce my theme for the Blogging from A to Z Challenge.

Blogging from A to Z Challenge 2021 Theme Badge

I prefer having a theme and create content around it – it makes it so much easier to focus my research and writing.

For this year’s challenge, I’m focusing on grammar and the common glitches that trip writers up. As a second-language English speaker, I include myself in this description.

I started to learn English at the age of nine. Before that, I spoke only Portuguese. I dedicated myself to this new language and was a top student both at school and at university where I majored in English Literature.

English grammar is not easy to master, even for first-language speakers and writers. It is with that in mind that I dedicate this year’s A to Z Challenge to the common glitches that tend to trip writers up. My aim is to make the articles informative and fun.

So join me on this journey into the marvellous and oft-times confusing English grammar.

  1. I’m a grammar freak and spend much of each evening yelling at my television when people get things wrong! I’m wondering if the solecism in Jasper Fforde’s quote is deliberate – ‘Ill-fitting grammar ARE’ … (is?) Just a thought!

    I’m looking forward to joining you on your grammatical journey!

    1. Thank you, Keith. The thing that triggers me the most is the incorrect use of apostrophes. It amazes me that even well-known news sites and online publications make these basic mistakes.
      I’m looking forward to your stories.

  2. Hi Regina, really looking forward to you posts as this is a subject close to my heart. I’m an Australian living in the UK and I still get tripped up regularly by using the wrong words. Good luck for the challenge.
