I was a notoriously poor student and as far as learning grammar tools I never really understood them while in school. And quite obviously still don't.
My so call English teacher seemed to think if I didn't already know these things he wasn't going to waste his time explaining them to me. So I never learned them.
So I ended up hating to do an essay type tests, give my a multiple-guess and I would get high marks always in the upper 90's, Essays they were kind enough not to give me an F but I never scored anything above a D
I did learn to write, just not the proper forms, what I do now has come after many long years of painful learning on my own. and along the way I have picked up a lot of bad habits.
I still have trouble knowing what a noun is or a verb are or whatever as the case may be, and some of the terms I am just now re-learning about.
Punctuation? lol I don't know the meaning of the word, let alone how to use them.
If I learn anything while writing here I have all you to thank for it.
So all the help I have been getting here is a win-win for me.
Truly I owe you all a world of Thanks,
