Have you ever started reading a book, but could not get through it, because there were so many grammar mistakes? I have too! Good grammar is paramount to your book selling and appealing to a wide audience. Of course, this applies to your blog posts, as well.
I actually have a book called, “The Little Brown Essential Handbook,” on my desk at all times. It covers basic grammar and punctuation, which is a must for every aspiring author. There are many online websites to help you with your grammar too.
Grammar.net is one of the best resources for grammar assistance that I have found. They have a grammar checker that you can download for free. It is a favorite website of mine. In addition, they have available many high quality infographics to make your life easier too.
Another website I like to use is Grammar Girl. Here is a great clip about when to use single quotation marks.
Another great site I stumbled upon is called Daily Writing Tips. There is a section on creative writing tips that I go to just to remind myself that I am on the right path with my writing goals. It is filled with inspiration galore!
Common Errors in English Usage provides a listing of errors that you can visit to get the low down on the usage of the word/words. It is worth a view if you cannot remember how to use a certain word or phrase.
There is no reason for any writer to have grammar or spelling issues within their transcripts. I find it is easier to take your time, go slowly, and take advantage of some of the free online sources to check your work. The key is to not rush to publish your blog post, or your book, before it is ready to face the world.
Good luck and search the web to find sites that help you in your writing endeavor!
I am so glad you stopped in today! I will see you all again. Happy writing!
