Do you ever wish you could go back to school and sit in a classroom to relearn all the things you didn't pay attention to when you were younger? Yeah, me neither. But there's no question that to be a good writer you have to master certain techniques. Since many of us decide to be writers well past those secondary (and even middle school) courses, we have to find good ways to practice the simple skills. Just as a soccer player practices their shot or a dancer fine-tunes a move, writers need simple exercises to keep all the rules fresh in our minds.

You can go back and review as far as Kindergarten. You can choose TV shows, movies, and characters that you find interesting. And a lot of times the sentences it generates will be funny. Everything is color-coded and easy to read. I highly recommend this site!
Try it out!
