Teacher explaining grammar to student

As an editor, I encounter certain grammatical mistakes time and time again. Errors aren’t necessarily a reflection of a writer’s intelligence – it makes sense that with all the quick, informal writing we do nowadays (emails, texts, etc.), and the universal availability of no-thinking-required writing resources like spell-check and Google searches, we’re lazier writers compared to previous generations. However, despite their widespread occurrence, grammatical blunders […]

Every year when the snow starts falling, eager skiers and snowboarders plot their path to the mountains for the upcoming season. While some will stay in slope-side luxury and barely bat an eye at three figure ticket prices, others will be limited by how much they can spend.

I’ll admit it: I’m a self-help book junkie. I love reading about how to improve my memory, be more resilient in times of stress, and impress people in only 90 seconds.
