It’s National Grammar Day! How will you celebrate?
Purchase some new grammar books? Here are a few (they’re all on my wish list, in case you were wondering):
- The Careful Writer
- The Deluxe Transitive Vampire
- Oxford Guide to Plain English
- The Blue Book of Grammar and Punctuation
- The Grammar Devotional
Purchase some cool grammar gifts? A smattering:
Make yourself a Grammartini? Check out the how-to video. John McIntyre has some more good ideas in this post. (You can follow his first two ideas by hiring me and continuing to read this blog. And John’s. His blog is good, too.)
Watch some grammar-related videos? YouTube has the School House Rock videos.
With Grammar Girl? She’s got plenty to do — and lists even more blogs whose publishers are celebrating.
Maybe you want to correct some of those irritating signs with bad grammar and punctuation. The Grammar Vandal shows you how.
Or how about rereading some of your favorite posts from The Writing Resource?
Is your red pen ready? Let me know in the comments how you’ll celebrate the day. Me, I’m off to edit.
Note: While I make a few pennies if you buy a book through the Amazon links, I don’t earn anything from the other links (though I am a member of the EFA).
