See if you're correct...
The reason you're likely here reading this article is you need to know the spelling of “horderves” and not knowing it, you simply sounded it out. While the word may sound like horderves, this is not the correct spelling. The correct spelling of horderves is hors d'oeuvres.

Writing reviews
There are numerous places where you're only expected to leave a brief comment when you write a review. For example, an Amazon review consists of allocating a star rating and writing anything from a couple of words: “Great product!” to a couple of paragraphs to explain just why you think the ...

Seasons aren't usually capitalized...
Sometimes it's difficult to know whether or not to capitalize certain words. Most of us know the days of the week and the months of the year are capitalized, but what about the seasons? Many people have to stop and think if they're supposed to capitalize winter, spring, summer and fall (or ...

For those who need to come up with great names for secondary characters
You're you, and you're quite happy that way. Why would you want to create a random name for anything or anyone or even for yourself? It's strange but true: you may well find the need to come up with a random name at some time in your life. There's a good chance you have made your way to this ...

Some great ways to improve your vocabulary...
For those wanting to improve vocabulary and spelling, doing so doesn't have to be all hard work and no play. Word games get our mental juices going as we strive to solve puzzles, beat our neighbors and come up with letter combinations that magically make sense when arranged in the right way.

Why there are times an Oxford comma is needed...
There is a lot of confusion when it comes to the Oxford comma and whether or not it should be used. To make matters worse, there was a time when school children were taught they should never use the Oxford comma. That's no longer the case today. While Oxford commas are strictly optional, ...

If you want to write a book, there's no better time than now to start :)
How long is a piece of string? How tall is a tree? As we so often find, there is no single answer to certain questions, and the question of how long it takes to write a book is one of these. there are so many variables that come into play it would be difficult to enumerate them all, ...

When to write each of these...
Since there is such a lot of confusion about homonyms (words that are pronounced in the same way but spelled differently such as wether, weather and whether), it's time to allot the task of explaining this trio to you. That last sentence may already have explained the difference between 'allot' ...

For those who were wondering...
The mysteries of punctuation are myriad, and they often come out when you are writing an essay. Where should commas actually go? When do you use a colon or a semi-colon, and should you capitalize your first letter after one of these full-stop hybrids? For those looking for a quick and dirty ...

You should be spending more time on your titles
What's in a name? Actually, quite a lot, especially if you're blogging. You may have a dedicated group of followers who'll read everything you post no matter what title you give it, but if you want to attract new readers and hold their attention, tiles are vitally important. Not convinced?
