Every writer needs to have a grasp on grammar. However…
Writer ≠ Grammarian
It’s not that I have a disdain for grammar. But grammar is a means of ordering the chaos of words flowing over a page, not the part of writing that my heart delights in. Usually, in fact, I find flat-out grammar instruction downright painful.
But it’s not so painful when it stops looking as sterile and calculated as math and starts looking creative.

Random? Yes. But you’ll never think of velociraptors or apostrophes the same way again.
