Gramma Friday ... and Encouragement

There ... Their ... They're

There . . . . . . . in or at that place

Their . . . . . . .  possessive form of they

They’re . . . . . .contraction of they are

I'd like to thank Mooderino for tweeting this bit of inspiration.

  4. Jess - I love the way the words flow on the screen, too. It's fascinating to watch. Good luck on your volumes! I need to do the same.

  5. Yeah, there (not their or they're) is often a big gap between what I write and what I want to write. :)

  6. Amen to what L.G. said. Perserverance, right? (I think I spelled that right. Don't you wish blogger had a spell check?)

    I just hope the gap closes before I die. :)

  7. L.G. therein lies the challenge, taking that glorious idea in our minds and translating to something other see in its beauty.

    Jill - I just hope I get faster at it, since I got such a late start.

  8. I love contractions. The only time I don't use them is if I want a character to stand out as otherworldly...like an angel. I hope editors don't wind up thinking that weird. :)

  12. This is one I've never had a hard time with, that God.

    And I read on an agent's blog (Janet Reid, maybe?) the other day that we SHOULD use contractions. It's the natural flow of speech and makes for more believable dialogue.
