There is so much that I don’t know about writing, I’m sure that doesn’t surprise anyone. I do have to keep reminding myself of this fact though, and when I do, I also need to remind myself that I can learn. If you don’t know something, then of course you can throw up your hands, say that you suck at xyz and throw in the towel, OR, you can suck it up. Accept the fact that you are not omnipotent and start researching, learning, practising ask for help and advice and keep striving to advance your skills and (ick I hate this next bit) do some personal growth!
The following is just basically a list of resources I recently found through Scribophile and I wanted to store them somewhere so that I could refer back to them later. Life is a learning curve, this is my next one to overcome:
http://www.scribophile.com/academy/what-are-comma-splices (didn’t even know this term existed until a few days ago)
General writing tools
http://www.scribophile.com/academy/cliches-and-their-place-in-prose (I can spot at least two of these in this very post)
Yeah, ok so I have a lot of reading to do *sigh*
