Hi, folks! Gail Ingis, here.
Now that my book, Indigo Sky, was finally published by Soul Mate Publishing and can be ordered in three formats, an ebook, print book and audible, I’m seeking grammar lessons to continue writing romance. I never understood grammar in the third grade and I’m finally annoyed enough that I’m embarking on a new learning adventure, with Elizabeth O’Brien, an ambitious English teacher that has taken my email by storm (pardon the cliche). Elizabeth is present almost daily. I haven’t tossed her out the window because I really would like to see how she makes it easier to understand how words work.
How can anyone be a writer if all they know is what a noun and a verb is, oops, are? I mean, I didn’t know the difference between an adverb and adjective when I began this journey back in 2009, and if it’s not visual, forget it, I’m an artist after all. So, how did I write Indigo Sky in 2015? I had lots of advice, help and even more ripping out, tossing out and foot stamping. Lots have happened since then. I’m more comfortable with adjectives, verbs, nouns, and the combination thereof. Also please remember to write a review, like everything else, folks only buy after they’ve read the reviews. Reviews are easy, they only need one or two lines, a title and of course, you probably know that 5-star is the best.
Now get this, I thought all adverbs modify a noun, huh? Then what’s an adjective? It’s so confusing. That why I ordered Elizabeth O’Brien’s book with the hopes that grammar will become my friend and serve as a great mapping system when I write . . . anything. Uh, oh, there are those elusive ellipses. Hmm, maybe I should have used an em dash? Sigh . . .
And don’t holler at me that I forgot a comma somewhere, Grammarly didn’t help me with this post, and that’s probably the reason.
Enough–I’ll keep you posted.
In author Gail Ingis’s dazzling historical romance debut, Indigo Sky, a young heiress must stay in her abusive marriage… until a handsome artist attempts to shelter her from a life of misery.
