Every writer needs to have a good foundation in the basics; if you write with bad grammar, bad spelling, or incorrectly used punctuation, no one will bother to read your writing. Learn the parts of speech and learn how to use them. Learn about apostrophes, semi-colons and commas, and finally, take some time to learn about those pesky words that confuse so many people - words like its and it's!
