Common writer mistakes #11

#11 — Different types of dashes In writing, there are three main dashes you come across: a hyphen (-), an en dash (–), and an em dash (—). I've seen writers confuse them all the time.

Luckily, I'm not five days behind as I was on that Thursday. Now, I'm only about two to three days behind. I can … Continue reading NaNoWriMo update — #1
