Although many blog contributors need no help with their writing skills, those who wish to improve may find our recent book ‘Bad Grammar and Brass Monkeys: How to improve your bloody grammar and writing skills‘ (ISBN – 13: 978-0-692-76825-9) useful. It was originally designed to help university students improve their writing skills towards an academic level. However, it will be useful for anyone who wants to improve his or her writing. It is a practical guide through the obstacle course of grammar, spelling, punctuation, proofreading and editing your work. It uses endless examples (including differences between British and American English) to illustrate explanations, instead of providing a tedious list of grammar rules to memorise and give you endless headaches, with a bit of humour thrown in here and there.
