Need your advice
October 25, 2016 11:17am CST
I've received comment on my writing that there are grammatical errors. . I've been asking my friends from long and they're honest with their comments. It has been kind of the same negative comment from so long that I've got grammar errors on my writings. I've been reading a bit more lately. I have no clue what to do. Need your guidance!

@RitzzView ok here's my re-write on this post. first line I'd say comments rather than comment. Rather than saying friends from long say either old friends or friends from long ago...or maybe even better say I've received comments from good friends. "It has been kind of the same negative comment from so long that I've got grammar errors on my writings." I'd say " I've received the same kind of negative comments for so long and they've all said I have grammatical errors in my writing"...on my writing isn't write in this context. BUT...on a site like this your English is 100% understandable so I see no problems whatsoever as I get what you're saying and that's the most important thing. Plus I'm no grammar expert I can only advise on what sounds right to me as an English person.

Do you have Word? I found Word very helpful with my writing as it shows me the grammar errors, particularly the comma ones. It also points out passive sentences. If you have Word, write it there first and then copy and paste it on here.

Hi! Your post here is understandable. It is good that your friends give you an honest opinion. I think it would help if you watch youtube videos about grammar or read a grammar book. I suggest you try Grammarly too. It is free. It helps me in writing here as well.

Wow! You gave me 3 good suggestions. thanks! I didn't mention in my post, but I am not looking for grammatical corrections for here. But I am interested in writing, I've been experimenting with my writing skills.. With few fictions, poems and stuffs. I also share it with my friends..that how I got to know about my grammatical errors. But I was sad when I changed my reading routine, and still it was the same comment. And..I've never tried the YouTube grammar learning's.. Let me try that. The grammar book is there at my home, as soon as I get back home, I'm gonna go through it. And Grammarly was suggested by @akalinus also here.. And I did try that.. Its wow!

Yes, grammar and writing is something to learn gradually with hard work and patience. I know. Okay. I'm determined with reading more. But I didn't understand the journal part.. What should I write? Are you trying to say that reading and writing should go along and that's why I should write journal?
