I've been writing a lot lately, and thinking about writing, and reading about writing, and now writing about writing; I'll spare you from any writing about thinking.
As I (re)learn more about proper English, I find that poor usage now grates on me. My ability to read efficiently suffers because I am now aware of improper writing—I keep reaching for a pencil to make edits!
I only hope I can learn to choose to read with a critical eye or not. Ignorance is bliss.
