If you’ve been reading my posts for any length of time you’ll have noticed that grammar rules and spelling are not in something I hold in spades. In fact, I’m down right atrocious.
I do try but grammar and spelling are a constant struggle for me.
Which is why I’ve decided to take the next step with a few of my stories and get them professionally edited for grammar etc. These are called line edits. I’ve polished everything I’ve possibly can and my lack of knowledge holds me back in the “rules” of grammar–I admit.
Regarding my abilities, this is money well spent.
I simply cannot make the damn stuff click. Have pity on me, I spelled “sure” as “shure” until college. I have no shame– English is HARD!
It’s the BEST decision I’ve made regarding my writing all year.
So a quick shout out to Andrew Newton for a job well done. If you need your P’s and Q’s checked Andrew is my guy. Either way get a guy or gal who’s good at it to check your words. You’ll come away surprised at the things you missed.
