Dotting the Ts and crossing the Is - the importance of good grammar

After trying out a service called Grammarly for the first time on my last blog posting this week I thought I would apply it to the whole text of "Tweet of Faith", a self published fiction novel that I recently published on Smashwords and Amazon.

I wanted to find out just how many errors my own proofreading efforts had missed.

Some random mulling on the question: "How did you get into writing?"

Author's disclaimer: This blog post is kindly sponsored by the lovely people at Grammarly :) 

I use Grammarly for proofreading because lectures in high school on correct punctuation and grammar still give me nightmares! After reviewing this blog the Grammarly online tool told me to "try harder", just like my old English teacher did...

Do we all have a story to tell?

I've recently been mulling why it is that so many people feel compelled to write stories. It's a very old proverb but "everyone has a story to tell" was just ingrained into me when I was growing up, and I never thought why that was until now.
