Grammar & Writing Guide


by M. J. Joachim
Writing is a detailed business. Determining the precise wording to express our truest meaning isn’t always easy. Keeping words grammatically correct, and sentence structure adequately sound can be overwhelming at times, especially when we need to express emotion or bring something to life through visual cues.

It helps to find sites like the one I found today called, Guide to Grammar & Writing, a site sponsored by the Capital Community College Foundation. Writing and grammar information is categorized by topic. Each category allows you to scroll down, where you can be redirected to a page containing solid information about the topic of interest.

You can also test your knowledge via quizzes, to determine if you need to focus a little more intensely on some of your writing skills. Guide to Grammar and Writing includes a large section of Power Point presentations on specific skills, as well.

Regardless of your skill level, I believe you will benefit from knowing about this site. It’s a neat place to brush up on some basic skills, and maybe even learn a few new ones. If nothing else, it will serve as a valuable resource when you’re frazzled, and just can’t think well enough to write straight.

Until next time, I wish you every success with your writing.

M. J.
