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.
