Grammar/Punctuation

To write with authority, you must understand the basics of grammar and punctuation.

Dangling Participle Phrases Annoy the Readers star
Dangling participle phrases are the most common grammatical mistake that I see in published fiction nowadays. Because they contain several words, they stick out like blight on the landscape. But now you can learn what a participle phrase is and how to use it correctly.

Do You Care When Trends Corrupt Language? star
Language changes all the time because every subculture needs a trendy way to express itself. This leads to linguistic trends that sweep the population, enter the mainstream, and establish themselves as acceptable over time though they break the rules of grammar and use words in unusual new ways.

What is Improbable Simultaneous Action? star
Improbable simultaneous action happens when we writers describe our characters doing two or more actions that no one realistically could, or would want, to do at the same time.
