I was reading through a book I got from the library, and found this good advice. Thought I would share it with you:
"18 Rules for Good Riting:
- Each pronoun agrees with their antecedent.
- Just between you and I, case is important.
- Verbs has to agree with their subjects.
- Watch out for irregular verbs which has cropped into our language.
- Don't use no double negatives.
- A writer mustn't shift your point of view.
- When dangling, don't use participles.
- Join clauses good, like a conjunction should.
- Don't use a run-on sentence you got to punctuate it.
- About sentence fragments.
- In letters themes reports articles and stuff like that we use commas to keep a string of items apart.
- Don't use commas, which aren't necessary.
- It's important to use apostrophe's right.
- Don't abbrev.
- Check to see if you any words out.
- In my opinion I think that an author when he is writing shouldn't get into the habit of making use of too many unnecessary words that he does not really need.
- And, of course, there's that old one: Never use a preposition to end a sentence with.
- Last but not least, lay off clichés."
