I’m starting a new category on the blog: From the Editor.
This will cover things that I discover as an editor while I am working. These are mistakes that I see frequently in writing that authors simply should not do.
It isn’t that I don’t want to do my job as an editor.
It is that you should, if you are going to be a writer, learn the craft of writing. That means learning basic rules of grammar and punctuation. It also means learning when to use adverbs and adjectives, and understanding why they should and should not be used in certain situations.
That being said, first post coming up soon about ellipses.
