Life’s been a little crazy for me lately. My editing business is growing. I’m prepping my lesson plans for an online copyediting course I’ll teach online in the spring. And now I’ve been named Interim Editor for the Copyediting newsletter. It’s all making my head spin a bit, and it’s keeping me from planning and writing for you here.
Once I get knee-deep in my lesson plans and newsletter managing, I’m sure to have lots of new lessons for you. But until then, I need a respite.
So, dear readers, here’s the plan: For the rest of October, you’ll continue to get a new Vocab Builders each Tuesday. On Thursdays, you’ll get one of my “greatest hits.” I hope in the meantime you’ll check out Copyediting.com. In addition to the newsletter, we’ve got lots of free language content and some wonderful training programs. Consider becoming a subscriber to read some in-depth articles on language and being an editor. And don’t think I’m saying how wonderful Copyediting is because I’m working over there. I’ve been a paying subscriber since 1998 — and I’ve got the newsletters to prove it. 🙂
We’ve looked at the basics of apostrophes and some more advanced rules. Now it’s time to test your knowledge. Head over to Purdue’s Online Writing Lab, and take this short quiz. It’s just 20 questions, and you get the answers right away.
Then come back and tell me how you did!
