OK, my weekly prattle: the top ten words . . .funny. Lose/Loose and Effect/affect ALWAYS give me pause. It drives me bonkers. Brian's was great. I'm happy to finally know how to make the end quotes after an em-dash. I'm sure an editor will be happy too. Of course, you know I loved the video from Jackson Pearce. I told myself I can get a fancy printer when I get a book deal. That seems like a reasonable self gift. Thanks Jon for gathering these each week. As always, you rock!
