Want to giggle over grammar? Check out the link below to a Web page posted by the University of North Texas. It’s a tongue-in-cheek guide to grammar/composition rules that will crack you up! Below is a short excerpt.

Don’t use a big word where a diminutive one will suffice.

Don’t use no double negatives. Don’t never use no triple negatives.

No sentence fragments.

Corollary: Complete sentences: important.

Stamp out and eliminate redundancy.

Avoid clichés like the plague.

All generalizations are bad.

At Writer’s Relief, an authors’ submission service, we believe that having a sense of humor is as essential to a writer as having a solid submission strategy!

    u no u can’t do good, but u can try. I don’t have no grammar to write of but no no means yes and that’s a rap.
    If you have two go I might want too go to!
    We don’t speak English, that’s the truth, we speak American! Who says things like, "Bloody hell" that’s English, Americans are a bit more earthy. "Right Chap"
    Have fun with words and take time to laugh at yourself, or you could get too serious about your creations!

“Getting that first poem published was the hardest threshold to cross. My team at Writer’s Relief kept encouraging me…then came the acceptance! We celebrated…then I continued writing, and Writer’s Relief continued doing the wonderful work they do!”

—King Grossman, Writer
