I strode yesterday. I think I strode. I was thinking about striding anyway.
stride, strode, stridden - is that right? stridden " I have stridden." It doesn't sound right, does it?
ride, rode, ridden. Yes. I have ridden. You don't hear it often but I think it's okay.
I love language. I love playing with words. I also like to learn new ones.
I have to tell you about this course I am taking, People make egregious errors. Like: "I was talking to he and so-an-so" And apostrophes in every possessive its. I have given up on lie/lay but it still hurts.
More about the course: the homework is inexorable, with 24-hour deadlines. When I signed on I was asked if I could handle four hours a day. Sure. Buit it's more than that. It's thinking time and often research before I ever put pen to paper - no - fingers to keyboard.
Lovely, though. I woke early this morning, about 3:30 a.m., and the movie, the one I am writing, started playing in my mind, with scenes I haven't written yet and solutions to a couple of problems along the way. I am so blessed. I mean,what would I do if I didn't do this?
What about strive, strove, striven? strived??
