4. Follow Conventions Pronoun Case He sat between you and I at the stadium. Idiom Jack had a different opinion towards him. Comparison of Modifiers Of the sixteen executives, Gretchen makes more money. Sentence Fragment Abby having to go home early. Double Negative Andie has scarcely no free time. If you're not sure whether you're following the rules of writing correctly, be sure to ask your teachers or parents for help.

Below are some basic writing "rules," along with an example of the rule being broken. Learn how to avoid these common mistakes. 1. Be Consistent Sequence of Tenses After he broke his arm, he is home for two weeks. Shift of Pronoun If one is tense, they should try to relax. Parallelism She skis, plays tennis, and flying hang gliders. Noun Agreement Eric and James want to be a pilot. Pronoun Reference Several people wanted the job, and he or she filled out the required applications. Subject-Verb Agreement There is eight people on the shore.

The single most important thing is to keep writing. Try to write something every day if you can, and always challenge yourself to improve on word use, spelling, grammer and pace. Try writing in different styles and genres, and when you read something you enjoy take time to work out what it is about that writer's style that attracts you. All this will help you develop your own style and also be skilled in a range of other approaches.
