Sorry. Blush

I would be disappointed if you did resist Smile

On another note, grammar books and apps (surely they have grammar apps) are handy little things.

Now, where did mine go?

Apologies.

To be honest I thought he was a girl too. The picture threw me off.

common mistake about my online persona.

1. Striding and swaggering rootlessness without end. The precious flow of life.
2. one should fear sweet a blood stained flower.

What is suvailatey? That is not a word and due to the surrounding shitty grammar, I can not even guess at whatever the idea might be in that part of the sentence.

THAT is your main problem, KD. If you want to improve everything, improve your grammar and many other things will fall into place. You have good ideas, you just need to be able to express them so others can understand what you are saying.

If you have to, slow everything down in your mind ... write out each word and look them up in the dictionary, if need be. I have a small dictionary widget on my desktop with which I constantly check spellings and definitions. When you get in the habit of doing this I can assure you, it moves along quickly.

While you write, say the sentence out loud or in your head ... if there is a distinct pause in how you speak a sentence, use a comma.

If you are able to articulate your ideas in a comprehensive manner, you will easily get your point across and be more fully understood.

agreed. i am always in a rush and my mind is always running at million miles an hour. I think its because of my adult add but I can't be sure.

How about a foreigner whose English is better than many native speakers'? Just don't expect me to be available 24/7, obviously.

The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

Aren't we all foreigners on the internet.

And all local, too.

Consider

IRL, locally, I'm a foreigner.

What I use (erm, used seeing that it's lost somewhere) is Hacker. You can get older editions for cheap (it's called A Writer's Reference). It's divided up into various topics such as citation and grammar. Just glancing at it, this Exercises for Hacker might be useful. Seems like it's exercises to accompany the Hacker. I'm sure there's other similar books but Hacker is what I'm most familiar with. If you want, you might google "writing exercises" to see if there's any like paper or something teachers have uploaded for students to work through. Even though you won't have a teacher on hand, it would be good practice to catch things.
