Bookgasms with…Let’s talk about CUPS

CUPS

So you’ve written a story, edited it, sent it out to beta’s, edited again and then hit the publish button. Yep, been there, done that!! So hands up anyone who knows about CUPS. Well let’s not all get carried away here, not everyone does.

Capital

Usage

Punctuation

Spelling

So for instance, it is really easy to assume that a sentence could go like this,

“Have you got any money left over David?” He said.

Looks good, doesn’t it!

“Have you got any money left over, David?” he said.

The second version is the correct version.

“I’d like that, Rose, if you still want me to go with you,” I told her.

If your characters are having a direct conversation with each other, then the comma should be used before and after the spoken name if it is in the flow of the sentence. Again the same concept goes with the end of the sentence for the same reason, to keep the dialogue flowing.

I hope you enjoy my simple little tips. Check out my instructions for including a working Table of Contents.
