Mae Clair Presents: Common Writing Mistakes

Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? I’m disappointed I couldn’t work it in this year, but from past experience, I can say it’s a huge motivator. I wrote most of A THOUSAND YESTERYEARS during NaNo two years ago, and that book is now under contract, scheduled to release in April of 2016. I’m presently knee deep in book two, A COLD TOMORROW, which is why I opted out of NaNo this time around.

I know many of my friends are participating and I’m cheering on each of you! Rah-Rah!
I thought as the month winds down, you might find these writing tips from Grammarly helpful. They’ve put together a snazzy infographic in honor of November’s writing fest. Check it out:

What do you think? Do these five common mistakes trip you up now and again? The bane of my existence is the dreaded comma. I’m always misplacing those buggers or skipping them altogether. Fortunately, I have a great editor who keeps me in line. Hopefully, I’m gaining a better grasp on the pesky things.

Which mistake trips you up the most?
