Admittedly, this week I have read nothing but articles pertaining to stylistics (and we’re talking articles from the 60s and 70s here), so unless you want to learn about the poetic function and a bunch of linguistic babble (I’m sorry, Chris, for making you edit my thesis), then I suppose I’d better redirect you to my other weekly indulgence: The Editor’s Blog.
Many of you enjoy my editing posts, but Beth Hill’s compilation of articles is absolutely amazing. Whether I’m reading her posts or her responses to readers, I’m always learning something new. She covers a range of topics from dialogue tags to punctuation to style to scenes. Basically, she talks about everything. And if you have a specific question to ask, she’ll probably answer it. Free editing advice? Sign me up.
Warning: if you go, you may not come back. Case in point: I just spent two and a half hours with my “morning” coffee at her blog.
Have anything to recommend? We’d love to hear about it in the comments!
