The Singular ‘Their’ corrected by the Comma Queen

To watch the lesson on THE SINGULAR “Their” either choose it from the playlist, upper left corner of video or click link below. Although, the first lesson is good too.

The Singular “Their” | Comma Queen The New Yorker

When writing my own work, and far too often, when editing your work, I see this more than I should. When used in dialogue, I tend to ignore it because that’s how people speak. When our characters are talking to each other, it’s rather common for them to say such things as:

“Well, everyone wants to go to the game, but they haven’t got tickets.”

However, in your text, you don’t want to use this kind of vernacular:

Everyone wanted to go to the game, but they hadn’t any tickets.

Everyone is singular…they is plural. Pay attention to what the Comma Queen says here. I always trust her to put it to you straight, and probably better than I can.

Happy Writing Everyone!

Feel free to check out more writing lessons from the Comma Queen on YouTube. I do. 🙂

Happy Release Day to Tina Mrazik for ALL ACCESS: Paradise Found

Best ALL ACCESS Paradise FoundALL ACCESS: Paradise Found

Book #2 in the ALL ACCESS series

by Tina Mrazik

Now available at eXtasy books.

Once found, paradise is fabulous but it’s also hard to hold on to…

Fame and fortune are the name of the game, and I seem to have a handle on it now. But now I wonder if it’s what I’ve always wanted or just a fantasy world built on desire, and the need to be loved. Don’t get me wrong…paradise is wonderful. It’s grander and far sweeter than anything I imagined for me, Tina Marz. The money is good, the parties are happening, and I am doing what I love more than anything in the world but it isn’t all easy work hours, freewheeling lifestyle, and glamour.

It is a hard road to travel and now staying on top is possibly more work than getting here. Is this finally my paradise? A seemingly perfect world filled with fame, fortune, and true love. Finally, I’ve found my life as a famous songwriter-novelist-screenwriter rock star. But is paradise forever?

The second book in the amazing ALL ACCESS series by Tina Mrazik.

Be sure to check out book one…ALL ACCESS: The Search for Paradise.
