Wednesdays Moving Forward

As some of you may know, I’m reformatting my blog entries. First of all, I will be concentrating on the Short Story, and how mastering those elements can help you get ready to write a novel. It will also give you a smaller canvas to experiment with different styles, points of view, settings, etc.

So, starting today, my Wednesday blogs will be devoted to Grammar. I feel it’s important that you realize that whether you are writing a short story or a novel, or an essay or memoir, understanding Grammar will allow you to present your idea in a way that your readers understand.

While the basic idea for your story is vital, so is your ability to structure your prose with basic Grammar and style.

In the past, I’ve written several blog entries on the comma, the period, and the ellipsis. Now, on Wednesdays, we will look at the other facets of Grammar.

You can look forward to information about:

  • The Parts of Speech
  • The structure of a sentence
  • Punctuation
  • And much more

Check back on Friday when I introduce that category,

Until next time,

I am finally a full-time author, who writes legal thrillers, how-to- books, short stories, flash fiction, a tiny bit of poetry, and Blog posts. My published works include 'Guilty until Proven Innocent,' 'Innocent for the Moment,' and 'Moment by Moment.' This is a trilogy called the Jill Adair Series. Additionally, I've written a collection of short stories about my dogs, Howie and Bernie - with a 2nd Collection coming in late 2021. I'm also coordinating an Anthology of Short Stories called, '2021 Indie Authors Short Story Anthology.' This book will be available on on August 1st of 2021. (The 2020 Indie Authors Short Story Anthology is currently available on - the collection includes 30 stories, written by 18 different Authors from three continents.) I am married to my wonderful hubby of over 37 years, and I have two grown children, named Heather and Gregory. I've been blessed with two beautiful grandbabies, Heather Rose and Logan Ernest.
