    Okay, I'm not exactly a professional when it comes to writing (or anything for that matter.) But I am an English Writing Major, and so I know a thing or two about creative writing. I've been graded on it!

     There are a few basic writing rules and conventions that a lot of people don't seem to be aware of, so I'm going to put some tips out there, and hopefully someone will read them and learn, and then their writing will improve.

    It is important when writing to remember a few things: you don't want to confuse your reader, and you don't want to "take them out of the story." In other words, you want them to forget that they're reading something someone else has written. It sounds weird that this could happen, but it's true.

     I'll do my best to be thorough and concise, but there's bound to be confusion. If you want something to be further explained or if you have questions, just message me or leave a comment and I'll address it.  

If you can think of anything else I should include in the tips, let me know!

#3: [link]

I'm not trying to insult anyone with these. I want to explain things to people who don't know about them, so a lot of the tips might seem rudimentary to some people. Sorry!

I really just want to help people who want to learn how to improve their writing.

I'm not the best, most flawless writer. If anything needs corrected, please let me know!
