In this week’s episode of The Writer’s Minute, I talk about the dos and don’ts of gender pronouns.

It’s easy to confuse them. Here’s an example, “Jimmy washed his car, shined her chrome and its wheels.” Rather, it should read, “Jimmy washed his car, shined her chrome and her wheels.”

Once we replace the offending pronoun with the same kind, the clearer the sentance becomes. If you do this one thing, your writing will sing like the song it’s meant to be. Remember, just be consistant.

In this week’s Writer’s Minute, I talk about editing your work before handing it off to an editor.

Tired of bad grammatical mistakes being caught by the editor? Fix them by printing out your document, highlight every adverb, adjective and replace with stronger verbs and nouns.

Take time to fix any run-on sentences and misspelled words. If you do this one thing, you’ll have a tighter document and less likely to see red ink from the editor.

In this weeks “Writer’ s Minute.”

So many people today try and find their calling by searching the internet for answers. But I have news for you… you can’t! I was watching a rerun of “Supergirl” and she was looking for a new job within CatCo. The problem, she was looking for answers on the internet. Supergirl’s boss, Cat Grant, said, “You can’t search for your calling on the internet.”

I was thinking about Henry Ford’s statement the other day, “If you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re probably right.” Whether you’re wanting to write a book, or start that blog, if you put your mind to it, you’ll succeed at it. If you think you’ll fail, you will.
