This is my first blog. Hopefully, it won’t be too boring. My first, er, make that my second post will likely be about a phrase I used far too often in my writing. It was brought to my attention last year when I attended a Coursera class titled “Write Your First Novel”. The best thing I got out of that class was our critique group. Seven of us used Slack to help each other along with our writing. They really helped me out with many things.

We were fortunate enough to have an English teacher in our midst and she was invaluable in the goal to fine-tune our grammar and syntax. She also recognized patterns in your writing. What she found will be my second post in this new venture.
