After I got over the thrill of deciding to write, I realized that it was time to sit down and do some writing. The fact of the matter that I was horrible at it, not the story so much but the grammar, figuring out where chapters should be and margins.
I had been so far removed from college English classes, that I lost my bearings. The first big mistake I made was forgetting that punctuation goes inside quotes. You would think that I would have checked that on the internet but instead, I thought I was right and put them outside the quotes. What a mess I created for myself by doing that one.
Let’s face it, not all of us know how to use proper grammar. I’m on my third book and I’m still not even close. They say you finally find your grove by your fifth book so I have time yet.
