When People Think I Am A Grammar Nazi...

This is how text message or online conversations usually happen when people find out I studied English/Writing and that I write for fun...

Stranger: Oh, so you're really careful about grammar?
Me: Not really.
Stranger: I see you added a period at the end of that sentence...
Me: ??? yo do whateva da fux u want. im actually a reeaally lazy txtr & i dont care to use good grammar here, there, anywhere...unless im gettin paid for it (or lyk im writing somethin impt like colorism in latin america). kk? thx bai.

Style (and voice) is important! @TessStevens

LOL I don't mind if people drop grammar, but if the spelling sucks, I get all annoyed.

@danidee like honestly I do care about grammar, but not as much as people assume. I personally think style and voice is more important (as far as engaging with readers).ALSOOOOOOOOO when I text...grammar shit goes out the window. I am a very slow texter so i just shorten things as much as possible.

I'm really bad at using punctuation when I text. Everything just turns into a long run-on sentence lol.
