We've created this Forum Thread with some workarounds and advice to assist you in publishing you ebook.

    A lot of it is wrong, anyway.
  • I agree. Most of it just sounds like an excuse to be careless.

    Grammar in the end is a natural occurrence, deriving from everyday usages which change. Communication, and writing in particular, control the rules we learn to abide by in order to make ourselves clear. The rules don't have an independent existence so while grammar is important (because adhering to common practices makes our language transparent which is what good writing aims for) they are ultimately a function of user consensus. Because that changes so, too, do the rules of grammar.
  • Fair enough, but writing is an artform with rules for a reason—they help you create clear, concise prose that will, hopefully, provide your readers with an emotional experience. Applied to painting as an analogy, you can discard the rules and paint with your fingers if you like, but don't expect results that look like a Rembrandt.

  • You have to understand the rules and reasons for them before you can break them.

    I am 65, my wife is 56, my 2 sons are in their early 30s. In various schools we were all taught variations of grammar. I recall one of my headmasters even telling me there's no such word as nice. I was so puzzled I had to put my chalk down on my slate and have a think about it.

    Well, what in the world did he think was the capital of the Alpes-Maritimes department?
