I've finally decided to join

I finally decided to join this class cause I know as a writer I need it bad. But to me grammar is like math. It makes me say "Eek!" But yes, most of what you taught about hyphens is all new to me. I know I must have learned something in high school or college but I can't remember any of th...

Thanks for this course.

Well, I'm one of those ones who often overuse the topic. I definitely did that with ooops, I think, I don't remember, but I think it was oops and with grrrr too. Thanks for that insight. Also the concept of staying on topic with out really mentioning the topic is new to me too. I'll have to try that...

Re: Here's my homework reposted with corrections

Harvestgal, sorry that I didn't see this until just now! I'll send you a PM to let you know that I've responded. As to your questions about when to paragraph: Each person gets their own paragraph for their own speech. When you switch people, you switch paragraphs. You've done it correctly in your &...

Here's my homework reposted with corrections

To be honest, I'm not sure how the dialogue grammer goes, if I'm suppose to skip a line and start a new paragraph only after the dialogue or If, I'm supposed to do that before the dialogue too. So correct me if it's still wrong. Marsha ran down the stairs, jumping the last two steps and landing with...

Okay

okay, I'll do that when I get home today. Self editing is in my opinion my main problem and something I definitely have to work on. Everytime I submit for the challenge and read it, I suddenly see all these errors. I guess I'm a bit lazy when it comes to editing but that needs to change.

Wups,

Just noticed I broke all the dialogue rules with skipping spaces and all that, sorry. Just ignore that one this time. Babies crying and I don't have time to go back in fix it grammar wise.

I never knew there was a top 40 until someone commented on my Eek entry saying congradulations for making it in the top for...

Wow, after reading back through everyone's list

Oh well, I'll give it a try

I'm so not good at this, hate editing my own work so fixing someone elses. Wow. Did it before when I taught esl overseas, but that's different. It's with non=english speaking people, trying to learn English. Anyway, I feel God wants me to practice and improve my writing so I'm gonna try this, if the...
