The Process: EDITING: Nouns and Pronouns

Continuing along in the editing process in your writing, I thought we should do a quick review of the proper usage of nouns and pronouns.

My biggest problem is remembering how to punctuate possessive nouns correctly. Do you add ‘s or just an apostrophe? For example: Is it boy’s? Or is it boys’? Actually the first (boy’s) is singular possessive. The second (boys’) is plural possessive. There are other tricky things to remember, like when do you capitalize proper nouns?

To learn more about these writing elements, I have added my artilce, EDITING: Nouns and Pronouns, to the Writing Tips on this blog and to my Writing Tools on my website.
