Thank you, Laurie, for the list. It's full of interesting tips for me to ponder.
Can you recommend a good book that would help me with puncutation in dialogue? Most grammer books I've read leave me more confused than ever.

Hi, Laurie,

Thank you for using my article. I hope it will help other children's writers!

Looks like I need to write some tips for punctuating dialogue next. :)

Happy New Year and Happy Writing!

My favorites grammar books are Strunk and White's The Elements of Style to read and the University of Chicago's Manual of Style as a reference.
