Common writing issues (and pet peeves)

I’m working on a better title for this section. Essentially, I’d like to have a place where I can direct students to my explanations of issues that I see come up again and again in student writing. I’m hoping to keep this light and (if possible) even funny and not pedantic. If you see anything here that sounds like it’s written by a guy wearing a tweed jacket with leather patches on the elbows, please come by Pardee 319 and slap me.
