Questions

Subject: Writing

Question:

How can I make my writing more descriptive without going over my word count?

Inactive
Kimra B.
Answer:

Using verbs that are more descriptive can be effective while also keeping article length concise. For example, replace a dry word like "went" with something more descriptive of the movement like "sauntered," "skipped," or "tip-toed."

Question:

How can you tell if something is fake news?

Answer:

It can be difficult to tell sometimes, but here are some general guidelines. First, check that the source is legitimate, reliable, and as free of bias as possible. Next, check for contradicting information from other similar reliable sources, because it would be difficult for two pieces of contradicting info to both be completely true. Further, be aware of words that would signal that the the info is only the opinion of the writer and not strictly the facts. Also be aware of anything that is riddled with careless mistakes, grammatical errors, or poorly chosen and/or missing words.

Question:

If I have a compound subject, should I always use a plural verb?

Answer:

You can use a plural verb if the compound subjects are joined with with word "and," however, if the two subjects are joined by "or/nor" then the verb should agree in number with the subject closest to it.
