Here are the basics, for anyone who needs a refresher:
- short for "you are"
Examples: You're the character I've always wanted to meet. You're the writer who will give J.K. Rowling a run for her money. You're beautiful and funny and amazingly amazing.
- possessive ... shows ownership
Examples: I would love to see your novel published. Your writing makes me weep (in a good way). How could you give up on your dreams?
I hope this little reminder helps during your next edit.
You're welcome. Have a memorable Memorial Day weekend, readers!
