Welcome! Congratulations in taking the first step to obtain remarkable writing services. Whether your sixth-grader’s English paper needs revising or you are a publication needing articles, Sean is the “Wright” choice! She composes and proofreads/edits everything from flyers to web content to press releases. Some people like to crunch numbers, Sean enjoys crunching letters.
Ms. Wright truly believes in the power of the written word to impress or disappoint, and wishes to help anyone who needs assistance with it. You don’t have to be an expert in English to know the difference that clear and grammatically correct writing can make. How many times have you gotten solicitation in the mail with a typo? Like most of us, you have probably thought, “Gee, if this company is that inattentive to detail in their coupon/flyer/brochure, what does that say about their level of service?” That’s Sean’s ultimate goal: to eradicate those embarrassing moments for companies, or give written communication a professional edge that is crisp and well-executed.
Take this little quiz that follows. This will give you an idea of how much you do or don’t need her assistance. What’s wrong with each of these sentences?
Lay down if you feel faint.
Everybody has their quirks.
We had saw the men in the alley before.
I had alot of work to do to prepare for the party.
Woe is me.
The waitress appreciated me stacking my dishes after I ate.
The lake was real serene at sunset.
Lie down if you feel faint. (The verb “lay” is for placing things, such as: Don’t lay your coat on the floor.)
Everybody has his or her quirks. (You would use “their” if the subject was plural. Example: All the students had their books. “Everybody” is a singular subject.
We had seen the men in the alley before. (The correct past participle that goes with “had” in this case is “seen,” not “saw.”)
I had a lot of work to do to prepare for the party. (The term “a lot” is NOT one word. Surprise!)
Woe is I. (You need a subject here, not a direct object. Reverse the sentence and it does not work: Me is woe?”)
The waitress seemed to appreciate my stacking my dishes after I ate. (A possessive pronoun is needed.)
The lake looked really serene at sunset. (“Real” is an adjective, as in a real diamond. This sentence calls for an adverb, which is “really.”)
Don’t fret if you did not do well on the quiz; those are the most common grammar mistakes made in writing. Sean can help you avoid those mishaps in the future. Take some time to look around this site, get to know Ms. Wright and consider what she can do for you. . .
