Eliminate Grammar Mistakes!


 "If you have any young friends who aspire to become writers, the second greatest favor you can do them is to present them with copies of The Elements of Style. The first greatest, of course, is to shoot them now, while they’re happy." – Dorothy Parker

Ha!  True enough, although I can attest that one can be a happy writer. The book though!  I read The Elements of Style from cover to cover before I started writing seriously, and it saved my life.  It virtually eliminated my problem with commas and taught me many grammar rules in a way that was easy to understand.  I recommend it to anyone who wants to become a better writer and avoid the grammar mistakes that may cost them a book contract.
