Have you consulted Grammar Girl? The website http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/default.aspx has a plethora of tips for students and writers facing grammar, punctuation, and formatting issues. This secret passageway to knowledge and resources was passed along to me by a fellow writer and now I want to pass the secret on to you.

The website provides short, descriptive podcasts for a wide variety of topics concerning confusing grammar issues or writing rules. The podcasts are easy to find, access, and use. Each podcast topic is clearly labeled and will appear promptly after selecting the appropriate link. I usually like to print the topics I am struggling with so they are easy to reference when I am working on an article or story.

Mignon Fogarty is the founder of “Quick and Dirty Tips” and creator of Grammar Girl. She is a magazine and technical writer at trade and believes grammar is a subject that requires lifelong study. She hopes to educate individuals about successful writing skills in a fun and friendly way.

See what Grammar Girl has to offer! It might even make paper writing fun, or at least a little more bearable.
