I found this wonderful Website called The Owl at Purdue when I was looking up how to write outlines. It had the topic I was looking for. It turns out that I had the right concept, I just thought there might be an easier way.
This site contains things such as proper verb usage. I have been proofing another writer's novel and it dawned on me that I was unsure of the proper usage of set. There are a few others that I struggle with such as lay, lie. This site has that and more.
