Calling ALL Grammar Police

Yes, I am calling you out. If you are wanting to give a gift that will keep you from blowing your top with your friends. How about, a copy of “Perfect English Grammar” by Grant Barrett.

He offers a great idea of how to write the perfect paper. The thing is that they have to be willing to read it. The book offers information on proper spelling, abbreviation, and even the Oxford comma. Plus there are section on proper word usage  and parts of speech. This book offers a great learning tool to anyone that wants to do better with speaking or writing the English language.

The book even offers tips in how to write a better paper. One of the biggest tips offered is to use the same style or point of view throughout the entire paper. You do not want to start off writing the paper in third person and end writing it in first person. That will lose and confuse your audience.

One thing that I tell many people that ask me for writing advice is to not be overly critical. Everyone makes mistakes. Do not hold your mistakes against you. Learn from them and move on. If not, you will find yourself getting stuck in a rut. Sorry about the pics of me not coming out well. That is what happens when you are sick and are a writer.

Need to Know Norse Knowledge

Rayne is at it again. She  created another workbook that offered DBug a great way to learn about Norse Mythology.She wanted to find a fun way to teach children about Norse culture and mythology. Yggdrasil and the None Worlds workbook was the perfect way to do it.  Her favorite story out of the book is the Three Brothers. I love that it offers her worksheets. With doing K12 for DBug, she gets to read stuff her father and I choose for her as extra readings. This teaches her about many aspects outside of the regular school curriculum offered here in NC. It offers her a chance to learn more about our faiths in a safe environment that is free from persecution.

Whether you are interested in the Norse Mythology, or you follow the Norse culture, this is a must have to add to your learning collection. I love it. She loves it, and we both look forward to seeing what kind of new books Rayne or Kyrja, Dbug’s two favorite authors have got cooking up next. That is the smile I got the day I told her she got the chance to review one of Rayne Storm’s book.
