i am a grate writer... Really?

Another good article by Angela Hoy of Writers Weekly. This one is full of examples of how not to send a query letter. I run several different websites that bring me a lot of email and I have had to bring in my 'gibberish specialists' to decipher some notes sent to me so I know these are not far...

The Pros and Cons of Using Semicolons

A nice article from Grammarly on the use of semicolons. I know some of this stuff is tedious but if you want to get paid to write, you need to be fairly close to tedious! These articles are interesting to me and I hope you enjoy them as well. Sign in to see full entry.

Any Time!

from Grammarly.com Many writers experience confusion between the terms anytime and any time. In everyday speech, these two terms are interchangeable because they’re almost indistinguishable. However, in literary circles they do have distinct meanings, and that’s certainly the case in academic... Sign in to see full entry.

A Writer's Little Helper

I've been using the Grammarly program before I publish a story but I haven't been doing it before I post them here but that changes with my current story.

Lesson. Dragon's "Naturally Speaking" is a good program but if you get a bad cold and your voice changes... good luck with that! It took a while for me to train mine... everyone of these speak and type programs I have ever tried has had problems with my voice or cadence, I'm not sure which. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Setting A Higher Level

One of my New Years Resolutions for the past three years has been to write more 'useful words' every day. My first resolution in 2013 was to write 500 words a day that added to the story line of something I was writing. In 2014, my resolution was to hit 650 words per day and for the most part, I was...

Read It!

I know I've posted the link to Grammarly prior to this but this is an important step in learning to write in a way people can understand and willing read your material. I know this isn't new but I also know this works as I used this technique with my son back in the late 1980's/early 1990's when he... Sign in to see full entry.
