I’m writing a children's picture book and enjoy the illustration element but struggle with the writing side. When using an online grammar checker I get the following error for the text below:
“In dialogue you should always have a punctuation mark, usually a comma before a closing quote mark.”
This is my text.
James once asked the cat, “have you seen another person like me?”. The cat crossed his legs and thought for a while, then replied, “I’ve scratched lots of trees, but I’ve never seen a boy like you”.
