Correct Use of "Rather Than"

This is a great question, and it is one I don't often see. On the other hand, it reflects a concept that confuses many people: parallelism. 

Correct use of “rather than” 

“Rather than” indicates a parallel structure in which two things are compared. To be grammatically correct, the two things being compared need to be equal, meaning they have the same grammatical structure or form. 

Here are two simple examples to demonstrate the parallel structure created…

Re-checking in

 

Hi everyone,

It's been a long time since I've visited Authors.com. I have been extremely busy with my writing. Here is a quick update.

I write what I call 'real-life fiction.' I take pieces of my life and that of others and then add in some fiction that results in a realistic sounding fiction tale that most will relate to.

In 2012 my 2009 self-published book, Sensitivity 101 ... the Search for Acceptance, was picked up a publisher after…

My Family

This Acrostic Poem that I had written back in 2005 originated from a contest I was entered in through my class. It was also published in the book called Gifted.

My Family

My family is so kind to me

You wish to have a family like mine

 

Family is everything to me

A good family consists of love and joy

My family has something beyond that

Including that we help one…

Inner Beauty

It doesn't matter how so plain

Or rough the crust may be,

The kernel is what truly counts --

The part we cannot see.

A piece of land perceived as good

And ripe for human toil

May yet prove unproductive

Without the proper soil.

Can we appraise the saber

While still within its sheath,

Or comprehend the ocean

Unless we look beneath?

Sights we often fail to see

And thoughtlessly…

Some days

This is a poem that I've written for myself in 2006. I try to send it out to people who's children has died.









Some Days



Some days are all right.

Some days are just grand.

Some days I wonder how we just can.



Some days you remember,

Some days you get weak,

Some days you get up and just wanna freak.



We are parents, we had children and we always

thought it would be, that our children will out live us,

that’s… Continue

Writing with silence

Good day. I'm new to the sight. I write nov els and short stories. Historical fiction mostly. Have written three novels. One is being serialized on www.bewilderingstories.com, another is in the hands of a NY agent. Todays subject. Does anyone else enjoy or have a need for music as a companion while writing. I do my best writing with a background of mellow jazz. Other writers I have spoken with can't write unless they have silence. You?
