Have you ever split an infinitive?
Whew. Oh good.
In the never-ending attempt to try to write the best blog possible and learn more about life in general, I turned in a post to a professional grammeratician. It was brutal. I was doing all sorts of things I had no idea were wrong. Like leaving two spaces after a sentence and misplacing a modifier and not spelling out the word inch and splitting infinitives. Just between us, when I read the evaluation, I wasn’t even sure what an infinitive was. I researched the subject and according to grammar 101 an infinitive is the word (to) + (the simple form of the verb). Like “to run” or “to read” or “to paint” or “to write.” Infinitives are the chameleons of the grammar world. They can be nouns or adjectives or adverbs.
And I was splitting them.
No more. I promise. From this day forth I’ll give those infinitives the respect they deserve.
I want to creatively write like I’ve never done before.
I did it again. 🙂
I once saw a tobacco basket at an auction that I should have bid on.
It got up to $17 and I thought it was too expensive.
I know, right?
Thanks to this easy DIY, now I can make my own.
A long time ago in a land far away I lived in San Diego.
And ate fish tacos every day.
This recipe looked like the ones from the Golden State.
I love this simple and easy idea.
This wall art? It’s wood chargers.
And I love, love, love this easy idea.
I think I’m doing it on my kitchen ceiling to hide all the imperfections.
