    • I appreciate the compliment.

      Grammar Lesson:

      The words “a” and “an” are called indefinite articles. The rule for the use of “a” versus “an” is fairly straightforward and easy to remember. “A” is used before any word that starts with a consonant sound, and “an” before a word that starts with a vowel sound. In the case of your post, the correct indefinite article before the word “inspiration” would be “an” (hence, “an inspiration”) because “inspiration” starts with a vowel, which also happens to be making a vowel sound.

      The rule becomes tricky when an indefinite article comes before a word that starts with the letter “h.” We’ll practice this on Monday.
