What does poor grammar say about you?

Allow me to tell you a short, painful story.

Back in college, I took a creative writing course as one of my electives. Our final project was to write a short story that we had to share with the class. Copies were printed and shared with the students, so we had time to review each story outside of class. Upon our return, our teacher asked us each to read an excerpt from our stories and listen to feedback from our fellow students. One young man stood up to do the uncomfortable deed of reading his excerpt, and then he sat down, feeling proud and hopeful that his story had made the intended impact. Instead, one student (it wasn’t me!) gave him the brutal truth.
