Okay it was an epithany but I like the mispronounciation. (inside writers joke?) I was sitting in my sons 5th grade class room last night for parent teacher conference. We had finished talking about my son and I felt the prompting to ask them about my grammar problems. At least where to go or look for help. She was exited and gave me a worksheet and told me to come back for more next week. They have tapes and worksheets to go alog with them. I was inspired! I know it! So instead of looking for some high school teacher that I don't know and would probably feel intimidated by. I have my sons gentle and sweet teacher for help. It has really paid off for me to learn to stick my neck out a bit.
I am, sort of, going back to school and I am excited.
I wish my 15yo DS would understand the privlidge of having a "free" education. I wish I could do it again and commit to memory the rules and work hard to become a good writer back then.
