Yesterday marked the two-week anniversary of truly learning subjunctive tense. Funny how it took me this long to learn a common part of everyday language.

In grammar, the subjunctive mood is a verb mood typically used in dependent clauses to express wishes, commands, emotion, possibility, judgment, opinion, necessity, or statements that are contrary to fact at present. It is sometimes referred to as the conjunctive mood, as it often follows a conjunction. The details of subjunctive use vary from language to language.

So, you'd say things like, "if I were a painter, I'd probably die from lead poisoning." Even though "were" isn't the proper tense for the subject, "I," you use "were" to indicate that what you're talking about hasn't happened.

Book #1

Imposter Syndrome: A Letter to the Artist by the Artist is the first book in the Book-in-a-day series. It was created on 27 September 2009, and measures approximately 4.25" wide and 5.5" high. It runs approximately 30 pages.

All of the books in this series are this dimension, making each one a "volume" of sorts.

Select scans from the book are posted below.
