Improving English and Grammar

Breaking into print can often times be difficult, especially if you have errors. Most time agents won't look at far into a manuscript if the grammar is off.

But I know of a few secrets to help improve your grammar and punctuation. So here we go.

1. Try taking small stories and typing them out on your computer. This will help to get the process rolling and train your brain to automatically put in the correct things.

2. Finding places online that would allow you print off things to study.

3. And this one helps a lot of people. Go to a G.E.D. website and use the practice testing center. I'm not saying you need to get a GED, you use the practice testing to help test where you are and it will show you were you need to be. It gives more help than most places I have found. You can read over things and retake the test until you get it in the level you want.

What it all boils down to is this, you can only improve yourself if you try. If you stay home a lot and are out of touch with people, consider getting out more hearing how people interact. The last thing you want is to revert. But last of all, have fun with it. You have the choice to think of it as classes or a fun experiment. Whatever it takes to help you.
