You Call Yourself a Writer Then Know the Subjunctive Mood, Ryan Field Books

 You Call Yourself a Writer Then Know the Subjunctive Mood

I see so-called writers all the time on Twitter and most are totally clueless about publishing as a business, and some of the most basic grammar skills. And if you try to tell them anything, they will tell you they know it all. These people will always remain clueless and most likely will never be published. However, there are also people out there interested in absorbing as much information as possible. 

One of the biggest mistakes I see writers make is when they are dealing with the subjunctive mood. 

The subjunctive mood is the verb form used to explore a hypothetical situation (e.g., “If I were you”) or to express a wish, a demand, or a suggestion (e.g., “I demand he be present”).

Here’s the rest. To take this one step further, here’s another example. 

I wish it were real – the correct way.

It expresses a wish and was becomes were. 

If you’re going to call yourself a writer, learn these basic skills first. There are rules in writing and they aren’t that difficult to follow. You can break all the rules with your storyline, but the writing should always be as close to perfect as you can get it.
