Hello all,

I am a writing expert for the Basic Learning Systems (http://www.basic-learning.com/) and I love helping people improve their writing, whether it is a short e-mail, a business proposal, or a doctoral dissertation. Our president and I decided to start this blog to offer people an informal venue for asking specific writing questions. It will also allow me to share some of the common errors I come across when working with individual writers. Post your questions here and I will be happy to address them. Happy Holidays!

  2. I get confused about whether the punctuation goes before or after quotation marks at the end of a sentence. Can you explain this?

  3. Is there a special way to fold a business letter (8 1/2 x 11) before placing it in the envelope? Should the folded side or the unfolded side be seen when the receiver opens it?

  5. Is there anything wrong with beginning a sentence with a word ending in -ing? I remember hearing somewhere that it was not correct to do so.
