Here are some of the writing techniques that you need to know when editing an article.

Pointless words/phrases

The word/phrases "that", "suddenly" and "all of a sudden" are considered pointless and should not be used in articles.

Example 1

Kevin and Jerry are fighting outside Gru's house. Suddenly, Eduardo kidnaps them with his airship.

Example 2

Gru announces to the girls that he works with the Anti-Villain League.

Gru announces to the girls he works with the Anti-Villain League. - Corrected

Out-of-universe perspective

Do not write about a character from an out-of-universe perspective. However, you are allowed to do so in the Trivia and Appearances in Other Media section, or if it's intentional (eg: Minions' auditioning for the the film Minions).

Example

Lucy Wilde is one of the main protagonists in Despicable Me 2.

Lucy Wilde is a rookie agent of the Anti-Villain League. - Corrected

U.S. English only

Title says it all.

Example

Minions are shown to be skilful.

Minions are shown to be skillful. - Corrected

Use present tense

Do not use past tense unless you are talking about something that has already happened before the events taking place in the movie (eg: under "History" section in articles).

Example

Eduardo discovered that Gru and Lucy works for the Anti-Villain League.

Eduardo discovers that Gru and Lucy works for the Anti-Villain League. - Corrected
