What is one of the most common mistakes to avoid in formal writing?
Check for subject-verb agreement! This entails that a singular subject takes a singular verb, while a plural subject takes a plural verb. For example, "The concept of fate and free will is a major theme in 'The Lord of the Rings.'" Most notably, the subject "everyone" is singular!
