One thing I feel as a crutch for me is my grammar. I just feel like there is so many rules with English grammar, it contradicts itself half of the time. Sorta, a never ending of tree branches relating to one particular thing. Do people who just have a niche just reading any story, analyzing every grammar error like a computer. I am learning different types of sentence structure, proper way to write dialogue. Things like this(, and) or (and)? I haven't got a clear answer if you need to put a comma before 'and' or not? I've been stuck editing my 1st chapter over and over again at the writing center. Acknowledging I have like 100k plus words to go and it's extremely discouraging. Now I question, is this what makes or breaks a writer? getting passed the gate keepers? Anyways, does anyone have any books that you suggest that would help me with my grammar skills? or better yet see what's wrong with my grammar on what I wrote?
