I love regularly reading tips and advice articles in certain subjects — particularly writing and publishing. I don’t always need the information right then, but I know that it’ll eventually come in handy. Or at least, I hope it will.
I know there are a lot of other people out there who feel the same way I do, but sometimes it can be difficult to find every useful advice article that’s out there. So I thought I’d bring you a few. Here are the tips and advice articles that jumped out at me the most this week.
- Too Many Participle Phrases, from Helping Writers Become Authors: Participle phrases are something that I need to look out for in my own writing. For some reason, I tend to include them more than I should. It was good to have this reminder. Excerpt: “The participle phrase is a necessary and important grammatical technique. The problem is that writers frequently end up using them incorrectly.”
That was a helpful article, thanks! I’d never even heard of a participle phrase before this. =)
I’m glad you liked it! I’d heard of them, and knew I was using them, but I could never quite remember what they were called.
