The Grammar Belle

Spiffing y'all up, one typo at a time

Here we go!

Hey, y’all. There’s a nasty rumor out there that Southerners aren’t as smart or as well-educated as the rest of y’all. It’s time to put an end to that. I hope to redeem the South and renew our image, and along the way I want to share with you some of the things that are dearest to my heart: impeccable grammar, the South and refreshing adult beverages.

I’m an editor AND a writer, smart, sassy AND Southern, bold but not brazen. I love pretty things, good manners, baseball AND basketball. It seems all a bit contradictory . . . and it is the essence of what I’m all about. One of my all-time favorite quotes, author unknown, is:

“The Southern woman is required to be sweet, bitchy, frigid, passionate, witty and scatterbrained all at the same time. Her problem lies in the fact that she succeeds.”

Here’s to success! I’m The Grammar Belle. Nice to meet ya. Stop by anytime. And next time you might want to bring along a glass of champagne. Or at least a sweet tea.

    I heard you speaking loud and clear. I may not live in Texas anymore but we know I am and always will be a Texas girl. Can’t wait for more!

    This Midwesterner likes what you have to say. Midwestern women clean the house by noon, feed ranch hands a huge “dinner” and help lay irrigation pipes in the afternoon. No need for feminism; they deck you if you get out of line. ‘Course we’re talking about the farm wives. Don’t know about the city folk.

    Oh, my stars! I really enjoyed reading your blog. Would you consider my request to add a paragraph about the use of the word “me?” So many public speakers and TV commentators tend to use the word “myself” in place of “me” that I am wondering whether or not I missed a subtle change in the rules of grammar after leaving school. Could you please help me? There I go again — writing the word ME. 😉

      Thanks, Genevieve. And YES! I will add “me/myself” to my list of topics. Thanks for your support and keep those ideas (peeves) coming!
