For Writers -- Yellow Sticky (Object Pronouns)

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

I haven't posted a yellow sticky in ages. I've always struggled to explain to people the reasoning for one form or another. I found this on dailywritingtips.com today and thought it worth sharing.

  4. This is nice to have. I just loaded it. Here it is.
    Premium is costly.

    Thanks, Max. I talk so much and write. My grammar is lazy.

  5. A post-it note for stalkers...
    Love it.
    The me/I confusion is perhaps the most common that I see, and always makes me wince.

  6. I wonder if you're looking for inspiration, ideas for blogs?
    I am very curious about your books, but so far nothing I could find.

  7. Thanks for the tips Mac. My writers group always finds those errors when we read stuff to each other for critique.

  8. I'm such a stickler (no pun intended) for correct grammar, spelling and punctuation. I try to do my best and didn't know one could find such 'sticky notes' as reminders. There are more than a few bloggers out there that could use some tips. :) Thanks.

  11. Not a bad idea to occasionally be reminded about correct grammar.
    I had tried to find your books but so far here in Australia I've not been able to do so. Even tried eBay and book seller Angus and Robertson don't seem to respond when I type in your name. Are they only on sale in the US or through an overseas seller perhaps?

  13. I generally get stuff like this right, but I'm no good at explaining why it should be written one way and not another.

  14. Ah, grammar - what a joy!

  15. Before you add anything you have to make sure the first part could stand alone. The Nuns were sticklers for proper grammar---of course that was many many years ago. Yawn!
