I developed the concept called R.A.C.E.C.A.R.S. - Rules of the Road for Revision and Editing. This acronym houses tips and techniques writers use on their way to becoming expert editors and stronger authors. This concept supports that R.A.C.E.C.A.R.S. are found throughout all written communication and are only a problem when they are not following the 'Rules of the Road'. R.A.C.E.C.A.R.S. can cause 'wrecks' in sentences. Through an engaging practice of keeping an eye out for R.A.C.E.C.A.R.S., writers learn to read with caution, spot potential 'wrecks', make 'repairs' and ultimately communicate more effectively through written works.
