Around the Word

  • Copyblogger's "Johnny B. Truant" touts the liberating wonder of pseudonyms -- a second self can make way for your true writing voice
  • Grammar Monkeys consider the "false range" so rampantly used by writers. Using "everything from...to" or "ranging from...to" often fails to live up to its promise of a full continuum
  • GalleyCat reports that Canadian literary mag Taddle Creek has discovered its best fact checker: the reader! Catch a textual error and enjoy a two-year subscription
  • Men with Pens shares the do's and don'ts of scoring freelance work -- read the ad, follow instructions, and don't be lazy -- if it says send samples, a link will NOT suffice
