I'm considering participating in the A to Z Blog Challenge in April. That's a stupid thought, since I have trouble with meeting my goal of publishing to the blog once per week.
I even made notes (alphabetically, of course), using a theme of the most common errors I see while proofreading and editing. My hope is that the posts would help those who need it and provide a little humor.
For example, for C, or day three, I'd discuss compound words. Like nightstand. Sentence fragments come much later in the month.
One night stand. One nightstand. If you search Craigslist for a table to put by the bed, trust me, you want to spell it correctly. If you’re actually looking for a one night stand and spell it wrong, you’ll be so disappointed.
And W! Or is that S for singular, or P for plural? Oh, my lands! Nobody mixes up man and men, but many mix up women and woman. Why, oh why? Is an extra syllable just too much?
Thanks, Ros, from Pushing the Bruise, for making me write this. You know, to see if it still hurts. It does.
