 Writing Tips

(If you’ve noticed my numbers aren’t sequential, no, it isn’t a problem with this writer’s counting ability. A number of my tips have been pulled from my website in preparation for their publication in my new writing tips book, Get a Grip on Your Grammar, coming mid-2017 from Career Press.)
