Improve Your Writing By Reading

Reading these sites, that is. I was perusing the Write 101 site and came across this page on common writing mistakes. They’re subtle, but at least I caught four of the five! Mistakes are much harder to see in your own work. I tend to set mine aside for a while and edit it after I’ve forgotten exactly what I said. If what you wrote is too fresh in your mind, you will read what you meant to say rather than what you actually typed.
