When it comes to creative writing, the "creative" is so much easier than the "writing". It's so easy to come up with a beautiful scene, an elaborate plot, or a complex character background. But when it comes time to actually write it into a book or story, that's where most of us fall short. Using words to paint a picture is a lot harder than we realize! Finding creative writing resources is always a challenge, which is why I was so happy to stumble across the Grammar Girl column on the Quick and Dirty Tips website. The column has a pretty extensive range of random grammar and writing tips on just about every topic under the sun.
