Monday Motivation – “Ain’t” Ain’t a Word

We’ve reached the end of our Spring Break-Away month, and the student entries have been full of fun and excellent rule breaking.  To cap off the month’s activities, try one last challenge that bucks the grammar grouches…

English: Originally for the article Contractio...

Monday Motivation – “Show, Don’t Tell”

As writing students, we’re told to “Show, not Tell”.  Giving active descriptions and dialogue in a piece engages the reader and allows him or her to be part of the story.  As part of this month’s Spring Break-Away Contest, feel free to break one of these “rules” of writing…
