Well, I'm going to get down to business, here. This may only be the Introduction, but I think it's in your best interests that you read this.
This guide is by no means something to live by. It is just a series of words typed by a humble author who doesn't have any professional experience with writing. However, I know enough to give pointers and tips on certain subjects that should at least help.
If you're looking for help on grammar, you may want to look somewhere else. I'll be putting some more complicated things, such as speech, but don't expect anything else. If you want to learn about grammar, it's as easy as typing 'grammar rules' into your search bar.
Now, I'll talk a little bit about how this guide works. Whenever an idea comes to mind, I'll write it down and put tid-bits of advice on how to do a certain thing, or how to avoid it. Therefore, this will have no order to it and will be pretty random at times. Sometimes, I may put a chapter titled: Odds and Ends. These will be full of little things that don't need a whole chapter, such as the differences between 'effect' and 'affect'.
I want you to know that I will be using incorrect grammar at times. That is because when you know the rules, you can bend them. For now, I'll tell you that using 'and' or 'but' at the beginning of a sentence is not correct. I'll be using them often.
Lastly, if you have a certain topic that you'd like to see a chapter on, you can either PM me or leave me a suggestion in a review.
Now we can start!
