The basics

So you love to write, but you're a little fuzzy on the grammar thing, sometimes. Well, as much as it's important to just get the writing down on paper without worrying about pesky details like perfection, (ha ha!), when you begin to edit, it helps to know a thing or two about the fundamentals of writing.

Annette Lyon has written a fabulous book, There, Their, They're: A No-Tears Guide to Grammar from the Word Nerd. She also has a great blog, The Lyon's Tale. If you're looking for grammar help, this is a great place to start.

When you write, you need to know the rules so you can decide whether or not you want to break them. ;-) And as a writer, I've found that the more books I can find and read on the craft of writing, the better I get.

Happy writing!
