Proofreading Tips #3: Indefinite PronounsProofreading Tips #3: Indefinite Pronouns3 years ago in Writing More Like This
Why are these important when proofreading? It's knowing when to use a singular or a plural verb. The "indefinite" part of these pronouns refers to the fact that the subject is undefined.
Many writers fall into the grammar trap by assuming that because the pronoun is referencing multiple entities, it requires a plural verb. Often it just "won't sound right" otherwise. But when these entities are referred to as a collective, a singular verb is the word you'll want to use. Examples of singular verb indefinite pronouns include:
Here are some examples of what I mean by a sentence "not sounding right" but it really is technically correct:
"Neither of the students wants to join her for lunch."
See that? Neither is actually the subject--"neither wants"--but because we add clarification that we are referring to students, it doesn't sound right. This can

Another tutorial for news articles and journals on dA!This one is meant to help you add structure to your news articles (and personal journals) and thus enhance the reading experience for your audience.
I have already written a tutorial on the topic of HTML Literature, but only showcased what is possible there. It is almost the same as :faq104:
This tutorial will try to explain why you should use additional HTML in your articles and how it helps improve their quality.
Also it turned out to be quite long, so skip to your liking.
For further reading please refer to CSS Tricks: Limiting .text width, which explains the necessity of limiting your text width.
Why is structure important?

CONTACTO LUEGO DE LA SESIÓN
Después de una sesión fotográfica, acostumbro a mandar un correo electrónico (o dejar un mensaje en MySpace u otra red social) a la modelo diciendole que disfruté la sesión y pasé un buen rato trabajando juntas. Esto no es esencial, especialmente si la modelo es alguien que conoces bien y ves todo el tiempo, pero es agradable si es la primera vez que conoces o trabajas con la modelo.
MANDANDO LAS FOTOS
Usualmente subo archivos comprimidos (zip) de las fotos ya terminadas a mi página web y le mando el vínculo (link) a la modelo para que los baje. Si la sesión resultó en una cantidad masiva de i
NaNoWriMo Resources Write or DieNaNoWriMo Resources4 years ago in Writing More Like This
There are tons of activities for National Novel Writing Month but the most important is that pesky writing thing. To help with that you can use an online application like Write or Die to do some solo speed writing. You set the time and/or word count you'd like to reach and then select your consequence settings. During the time you must continually type or you will receive a negative consequence.
Write or Die really does put the prod in productivity with multiple consequence settings and a timer.
Track your progress! This will help you see how far you've come and how much you still need to accomplish. It's a great way to procrastinate too! There are loads of fancy and simple ones on the internet if you run a quick Google search.
I found this one on deviantART: NaNoWriMo 20
