Tips to help improve your Writing……
- Proofread carefully to see if you words out.
- If you reread your work, you can find on rereading a great deal of repetition can be avoided by rereading and editing.
- A writer must not shift your point of view.
- And don’t start a sentence with a conjunction. (Remember, too, a preposition is a terrible word to end a sentence with.)
- Don’t overuse exclamation marks!!
- Place pronouns as close as possible, especially in long sentences, as of 10 or more words, to the irantecedents.
- Writing carefully, dangling participles must be avoided.
- If any word is improper at the end of a sentence, a linking verb is.
- Take the bull by the hand and avoid mixing metaphors.
- Avoid trendy locutions that sound flaky.
- Everyone should be careful to use a singular pronoun with singular nouns in their writing.
- Always pick on the correct idiom.
- The adverb always follows the verb.
- Last but not least, avoid cliches like the plague; They’re old hat; seek viable alternatives.

Regular naps prevent old age, especially
if you take them while driving.
Having one child makes you a parent;
having two you are a referee.
Marriage is a relationship in which one person
is always right and the other is the husband!
I believe we should all pay our tax with a smile.
I tried – but they wanted cash.
Don’t feel bad. A lot of
people have no talent.
Don’t marry the person you want to live with,
marry the one you cannot live without, but
whatever you do, you’ll regret it later.

A fellow stopped at a rural gas station and, after filling his tank, he paid the bill and bought
a soft drink. He stood by his car to drink his cola and he watched a couple of men working
along the roadside. One man would dig a hole two or three feet deep and then move on.
The other man came along behind and filled in the hole. While one was digging a new hole,
the other was about 25 feet behind filling in the old. The men worked right past the fellow
with the soft drink and went on down the road. “I can’t stand this,” said the man tossing the
can in a trash container and heading down the road toward the men. “Hold it, hold it,” he said
to the men. “Can you tell me what’s going on here with this digging?”
“Well, we work for the county government, ” one of the men said. “But one of you is digging
a hole and the other is filling it up. You’re not accomplishing anything. Aren’t you wasting the county’s money?”
“You don’t understand, mister,” one of the men said, leaning on his shovel and wiping his brow.
“Normally there’s three of us–me, Rodney and Mike. I dig the hole, Rodney sticks in the tree and
Mike here puts the dirt back.” “Yea,” piped up Mike. “Now just because Rodney’s sick,
that don’t mean we can’t work, does it?” 😱😳😁😎
Tuesdays’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
The last line of Casablanca (1942) is also often misquoted (and the name Louis, pronounced ‘Louie’ (in French), is often mis-spelled as Louie). The correct line, spoken by Humphrey Bogart, is: “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”
Wednesday’s Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from????
“You… you bungled it. You and your stupid attempt to buy it.”
Tuesday’s Quizzler is….
You are an expert on paranormal activity and have been hired to locate a spirit haunting an old resort hotel.
Strong signs indicate that the spirit lies behind one of four doors. The inscriptions on each door read as follows:
Door A: It’s behind B or C
Door B: It’s behind A or D
Door C: It’s in here
Door D: It’s not in here
Your psychic powers have told you three of the inscriptions are false, and one is true. Behind which door will you find the spirit?
Answer: The spirit lies behind Door D.
If the spirit is behind Door A, then both B and D are true.
If the spirit is behind Door B, then both A and D are true.
If the spirit is behind Door C, then A, C, and D are all true.
If the spirit is behind Door D, then the statements on all the doors are false, except for that on Door B. This matches the rules, and therefore, the resort hotel spirit lurks behind Door D.
