Here’s how to improve your writing in the new year

If your New Year’s resolution is to improve your writing, you’ve come to the right place. And why not start with writing New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day correctly? You capitalize both of those terms, but don’t capitalize “resolutions” in “New Year’s resolutions.” And remember the apostrophe!

A screenshot of a message from Stylebot on Slack that reads:Use "New Year's," "New Year's Day," "New Year's Eve" and "happy New Year" when referring to the holiday. Lowercase general references: "He was looking forward to a fresh start in the new year." Also lowercase "resolutions" in "New Year's resolutions.""
