Twenty Writing Tips

Explain how Europe benefited from cultural diffusion during the period c. A.D. 1000 - 1500.

  1. Don't use no double negatives.

  2. Don't abbrev.

  3. Check to make sure you haven't anything out.

  4. Personally, in my opinion, I think a writer should not make too much use of too many words or phrases which he might or might not necessarily need in many cases.

  5. Don't write run on sentences you have to use punctuation.

  6. About fragments.

  7. In a series of separate independent clauses (with a coordinating conjunction like and, but, for, nor, or, so, and yet) before a direct address or quotation and after an introductory element you should use commas.

  8. Don't, use commas, when they are, not needed.

  9. Use semi-colons; only between; independent clauses don't scatter them about.

  10. A writer mustn't shift your point of view.

  11. Keep your tense consistent. You didn't want to shift from present to past tense.

  12. A noun must agree with their antecedents.

  13. In good writing, a noun and a verb agrees with each other.

  14. Poor speling in your writting makes a bad impresion on alot of reeders.

  15. Slang freaks out some readers and makes others blow chunks, so put a lid on it.

  16. Don't repeat; don't be redundant. Don't say the same thing twice; say something only once. In other words, don't be repetitious. Repeating is something you shouldn't do.

  17. Writing dangling modifiers, the reader will be confused.

  18. Be sure to have one clear noun reference for each pronoun. This is important.

  19. Parallel construction is important and to be a guide in writing sentences.

  20. Last but not least, lay off clichés.
