So, I was on Skillshare brushing up on some information. I found a dude. The dude knew a lot...and then his knowledge fell flat and he started being wrong despite claiming to be an editor for a major newspaper company. So I went on a "help spree," no harm intended (lol). My concern was that his viewers need to know where to go right instead of wrong. Maybe he'll fix those last videos, maybe not.
My extremely thorough commentary was, in a way, pretty funny to me, though. I poked some holes in his incorrect usage and omission of information on dialogue and quotations, on modification of quotes using brackets, and a few other very important things which can help writers move from the novice stage to a more expert one.
(If you want some more writing tips, head here, to my free Wattpad book. Otherwise, skim down for the extra tips I'd given this "editor" for writing properly.)
Welcome to My Oopsie:
So, there you have it. Some incredibly complex (yet easy to remember once put into practice) rules for beautiful punctuation! It was very fun to correct an editor, haha! I hope this was helpful!
Send me a message on my Contact Me form if you'd like to see some more grammar rules, or if I've missed something important! The form is at the bottom of my home page at https://www.7bloodfire.com/.
And good grief, this would have been a perfect time to have worn my new "Because...#Reasons" shirt! I'd have felt quite smug, wearing that!
