Introducing Editing for Grammarphobes 2.0
I’ve missed all of you lovely Bibliophiles.
I’ve been dealing with my father’s declining health and all that entails, including several hospital stays and moving him twice, the second time to a senior care facility where I know he receives excellent care. I have one piece of advice about dealing with aging parents — don’t be an only child! Oy!
Anyhow, I just landed a new freelance assignment that uses AP style guidelines, so I bought a new copy of The Associated Press Stylebook to brush up after years of using the Chicago Manual of Style for the books and fiction in general. The 2016 AP Stylebook is filled with so many updates, my little grammar nerd self can’t resist sharing with you that I am bringing back Editing for Grammarphobes.
Every Wednesday, Editing for Grammarphobes 2.0 will feature a ton a great information on proper usage, homophones, updates, and general word nerd heaven.
I’m not going to cover any specific style items, in case you use Chicago Manual, just handy tips to enhance all of our writing, from daily emails to articles to books. Everyone needs to write, right?
I hope you will join me for the first installment of Editing for Grammarphobes 2.0 on Wednesday, August 31.
See you then,
