never heard of it in my life

only helps you with syntax/usage/grammar
Make 2 sentences.
Example: Text messaging simplifies life; without the right plan it can really prove wuite expensive.
2nd part isn't a complete sentence.without the right plan it can really prove wuite expensive.
Example (Comma):The game ended, but the crowd refused to leave. (notice these two can stand alone as sentences)
these can't stand alone as sentences
Section VIII. The Colon
THE SECRET OF THE COLON
• The COLON joins a fragment that defines, clarifies or presents more information about some item in the first sentence.
A large car blocked my driveway. A huge SUV. (WRONG)
A large car blocked my driveway: a huge SUV. (RIGHT)
P.S.Another alternative to the colon would be using -- however, the colon looks better in a formal piece of writing
Section IX. Introduction
• This concludes my tools and technique guide for formal writing. I hope this assists many of you in raising your ability to write a successful piece of formal writing. If you have any questions feel free to PM me at any time and I will try to get back to you.
• I would like to give my gratitude to my English Composition teacher, DR. K, for teaching me these successful tools and techniques.
section 9 is an introduction?OVERVIEW OF YOUR GUIDE:
-kindergarten/elementary techniques (ie fanboy/i believe)
-organized, but lacks more examples
-proof read before posting.. (last section you called it introduction)
