Descrição da editora
Want to write fiction, but not a fan of grammar? Maybe you wanted to know if you should use a comma, only to find first you had to know what an appositive was or whether your conjunction was coordinating or subordinating. Fear not, Grammar for Fiction Writers Who Don't Like Grammar is here for you.
This book takes out all the technical words and explains the rules you need to know in plain English with clear examples. Certain aspects of grammar and punctuation which generally only come up in fiction (such as punctuating dialogue) are highlighted, as well as common misconceptions and mistakes.
This book is not intended as a complete guide to grammar. It's aimed at writers who want to produce a draft without constant, distracting mistakes and perhaps save time and money when it comes to hiring an editor.
If you're a writer of something other than fiction, you'll still find plenty of gems to tidy up your written work.
