When it comes to writing, many people overlook how important good grammar can be. The better the grammar, the clearer the message, and the greater chance that the reader will understand message’s intent and meaning.
Grammar errors also detract from the reading experience, and cast a shadow on the writer’s competence and concern for their work. If the grammar is poor, it makes it much harder for your writing to be influential.
However, great writing doesn’t require perfect grammar, and occasionally grammar rules can (and should) be broken. A writer is better served being engaging, persuasive and entertaining, than a stickler for English rules.
Keep in mind though that you can’t break grammar rules effectively if you don’t know them in the first place.
