is the past tense of "are".
"was" is the past tense of "is".
"were" and "was" can both
be used as past tense of "am"
unless it follows "if" in which
case only "were" should be used,
unless the "if" in question asks
for a person's age in which case it should be
"was" as past tense of "am"
and never "were."
the kind of nonsense that puts people off
writing. Now I'm going to tell you a secret
that all writers know that most people don't.
There is no right and wrong when it comes to
spelling and grammar, there are preferred
spellings and preferred rules of grammar but
it's never a case of being right or wrong.
is an art. A writer's intention is to create
a picture in the reader's mind about what is
happening within the story taking place. The
writer will often skip details that are
deemed unimportant while going into precise
detail about events relevant to the plot. The
written word becomes a tool that coneys the
story, not just telling the events but taking
the reader upon a journey letting them see
the events taking place.
no right or wrong way to paint a picture, and
there's no right or wrong way to write a
story. Of course once a writer has finished
the story they will go through it with a fine
tooth comb checking the grammar and spelling
but it's just for the sake of making it an
too concerned about the structure of writing.
Just get that story down. If someone tells
you you're wrong for using the word "laid"
instead of "lay", or tells you the
word "agasp" doesn't exist just
ignore them. You are the writer not them,
write it your way.
I'm a big fan of the Oxford comma.
