Always pick on the correct idiom.

If any word is improper at the end of a sentence, a linking verb is.

Don't never use no double negatives.

Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.

Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed. Puns are for children, not groan readers.

Use the semicolon properly, always use it where it is appropriate; and never where it isn't. Be carefully to use adjectives and adverbs correct.

Steer clear of incorrect forms of verbs that have snuck in the language.

"Avoid overuse of 'quotation "marks."'

Use words correctly, irregardless of how others use them.

If you've heard it once, you've heard it a thousand times:

Resist hyperbole; not one writer in a million can use it correctly.

 Run on sentences cause all sorts of problems for readers and people should never use them and must try to write better and divide their sentences.

Be carefully to use adjectives and adverbs correct.

Don't string too many prepositional phrases together unless you are walking through the valley of the shadow of death.

Good writers do not use one verb tense in one part of a sentence, and then have switched to a different tense in the next.

Bee careful two use the write homonym.

Join clauses good like a conjunction should.

Sentences without verbs--bad idea.

Proofread carefully to see if you words out.
