On writing, grammar, and punctuation

On writing, grammar, and punctuation

Well, here I am. I never really thought I would start blogging about writing, but the nerd in me just won’t let it go. Reading and writing are such a huge part of my life and I just feel compelled to share little tidbits of information with anyone who will listen. I don’t know about other editors, but a good portion of the text messages I receive from my friends are questions about proper grammar usage. I figure if my friends are asking me this many questions about writing, maybe it’s time for me to start blogging about it.

I’d like to keep this blog updated with tips and tricks on writing effectively, using proper grammar and punctuation, and how to distinguish between often-confused words. But since I have been working in publishing for so long and I also provide formatting services to my clients, I might add in a few posts on self publishing and blogging. And, of course, a blog on writing wouldn’t be complete without a little nerdy grammar humor. So, I hope you’ll join me on this weird journey and if you happen to find my blog by a random Google search, please follow me on Twitter and Facebook! Comments and questions are always welcome!
