TipsA Lesson by Candy-pooh
If you need some tips on writing, here are a few
There are LOTS of mistakes that I alone catch while reading and writing. Everyone does. Like dialog 'mistakes' spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes, you get it. In a book/ story and there is people talking but they say something that no normal person would say, when someone misspells a word, uses bad grammar or the wrong words, then you have a giant floating question mark over your head! Here are some tips to help you NOT make your readers do that;
Plenty of people make this mistake, you don't have to be one of them! If you see a red squiggly line under a word, it's because it is spelled incorrectly. Lot's of people know this, but, you just right click it and there will be a list of words that may be what you wanted. Other spelling mistakes are if you use the wrong word, like new for knew or no for know, ect.
Dialog 'mistakes' aren't really mistakes. The writer has a character say something that no normal person would say, or they say something so strait forward that it's boring, A.K.A. too much too fast. You want your character's dialog to match their personality, say you have a dull, boring person, you would want THEM to say something to match their personality, ect.
Grammar mistakes are really easy to spot. There is not much to say about this one. If you use bad grammar or say a word twice, the computer will notice and put a green squiggly line underneath.
1. Capitalize things that need to!
2. Help others!
