I want to participate in a grammar checking group on Scribophile to help clean up my manuscripts. I’m not joining it now because it is a mutual aid group, and I don’t feel confident enough in my current grammar skills to proofread anyone else’s work. However, it’s a goal I’m working towards and I decided to start a self study project to improve my grammar skills. I know it will improve my writing but I also believe it’d be good to let another set of eyes go over my manuscripts so I won’t do my own proofing.
I’ve bookmarked some websites that offer free lessons and interactive tutorials because I believe it’ll be more engaging than buying a book and trying to memorize its contents, though I’ll still buy reference books in the future. The first site I’m staring with is English Grammar 101. I will repeat lessons/tests until I master them then move on to the next section and do that with all the websites I have bookmarked.
