Editing Grammar Errors — A Simple, Fun Graphic

I offer various types of book editing services, including simple proofreading (also known as copyediting) to full-blown ghostwriting — and it all involves editing grammar errors.

I’m also a copyeditor and content writer and subscribe to various websites. Recently I came across a graphic that I thought was well laid out (designed by Blue Grass), and better yet, the site allows viewers to share it. The link is from copyblogger.com with 503 reader comments (and counting). That’s a lot of feedback, overwhelmingly positive, and so I thought I’d blog on it.

Editing Grammar Errors

Here goes — a practical tool to help anyone, especially fledgling authors, defeat the “goofy” grammatical errors that appear in our manuscripts. Sometimes, even the simplest of word choices become a conundrum. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to go back and correct my own copy … but English isn’t exactly a straightforward language. Editing our own errors is part of the craft, isn’t it? We should always proof our work or have someone else do it for us. In my case, I’m also very busy editing grammar errors for others, and thankfully so!

By the way, I think this graphic is great for high school students as well. It’s written and designed to be fun as well as useful.
