Online Writing Guidelines

If you are new to this series, the first post is New Year’s Resolution: Learn to Write: Part 1, followed by Part 2: Helpful Writing Books.

To help out those who are needy like I am when it comes to writing, below are a range of online resources – grammar, language usage, style guides, clichés, writing guides, punctuation, writing tips and suggestions. Btw I won’t recheck before posting since 1) a storm has messed with Internet connections in SE Asia, and 2) I’m a bit shagged from lack of sleep. Apologies if any are iffy in any way.
