Editing links

by Glyn Pope, France, guest blogger

After the first draft of our masterpiece is written comes the time to begin to rewrites and edits. I found this page quite useful for self edit:

During the blog party, the following links were offered. To make them more easily accessible for a reference to bookmark, I compiled them for this post.

For grammar and writing
The Guide to Grammar and Writing is a reference resource I have used for some years now. It makes fascinating browsing too, especially in the so-called Grammarlogs (their Q&A section)
