Writing properly. What could that be? How can you know every single detail of a language, so you never make any mistake? Is that possible? Probably not, but you need to try or you’ll never be the writer you want to be.
As most of you know, English is not my native tongue, not even a good secondary one, let me tell you. Fortunately, I have my husband working on my posts and books to correct any sort of mistake that slip through the cracks, and there are plenty of those, from usage mistakes, to grammar and even some eventual punctuation mistakes… Pretty much everything is different between our two languages.
So, I’ve been studying and trying to improve my writing abilities and somewhere along the path I found an interesting website that almost seems to be written specifically for me: writingexplained.org.
Here, you’ll find numerous tips and solutions for a whole lot of problems and doubts you may have. Yet, it has plenty of information and sometimes, when you’re in a rush, it doesn’t really help or make you any better at what you’re doing. But, the best part, and the reason I decided to make a post about it, is the e-book situated on the home page.
It’s a 20 page e-book with the most common mistakes people make when writing. It’s easy to read (I did it in 15 minutes or so), practical and very easy to consult whenever you feel the need to.
