I figured this would be a great thread to learn from others. Name only the most useful tips that have changed your writing for the better. My tip that I learned recently would be to know the difference between "Then" and "Than." I was running around not knowing the difference, and I'm sure that it had at least a slight impact on my writing. Then usually explains time. Such as, "Then the monster mercilessly ate the tuna fish taco for lunch." Than is often used as a comparison to something. Such as, "You sir, have more than enough money." So anyway, post your tips. Feel free to refine mine, if you feel my explanation is a bit off. I understand it for myself, but I don't know if I explained it well enough. LET'S LEARN!
