Don’t write this down: Just listen to this brief reminder of writing rules:

Never start a sentence with a quote

Always give in-text citations after quotes

Never say “I,” “me,” “my,” “you,” or “your” if you’re not asked to write about yourself.

Never start a sentence with “And,” “But,” “Because,” “So,” “Well.”

Always write out a number under 100 when it’s in a sentence.

If you’re talking about two people doing something and you’re trying to debate when you use “I/me,” “him/her” or “ he/she,” just remove the other person from the sentence & see which sounds right.

When speaking about something that happened in the past, always use past tense verbs.

“Like if” is not a phrase.

Let’s review dead words and phrases of death!
