an editing bible

Now that my kids are back in school, I've been editing again. I thought I'd share a useful blog post I've been using as a grammar guide the last few months: The Blood-Red Pencil: Style Blunders in Fiction.
My shelves are filled with books on grammar (I'm cool like that), but I find myself using this more than anything else for a quick manuscript fix. It's common sense stuff, but it's nice to have all of the things I need to check there in one page. I hope it helps you, too!


  1. That was a very helpful post! Thanks for sharing it.

  2. Glad if it helps! I love lists, so this post helped me have something to check off as I go.
