Tremendous Tool

I’ve just been reminded what a tremendously useful book this is (I was describing someone as a ‘let-down’ and needed to know whether the hyphen was correct. It is.). Writers, if you don’t already own a copy, I’d give serious thought to putting that right.
I’m about three quarters through type-setting the stories and poems for my writing group’s collection (I finished proofing and editing them yesterday). Slow work, it is. I’ll be happy when it’s all done and I can get back to writing (what I’m paid for!) – not that I’m not enjoying it. There are stories that need writing and a little novel that needs fixing and finishing. More hours in the day, anyone?

    Here, have a free 20 minutes, but use it wisely! Thanks for the recommendation, never heard of that book, I might just pick up a copy. I usually make up where the hyphen goes, I am very very lazy. Glad to see you are back to your formerly busy self!

    Oh Tania, the book is amazingly helpful – it tells you all the stuff that sounds obvious that you’re not quite sure of. Tell you what – and I’m being serious – email me your address and I’ll buy one and post it to you.Nik

    PS the 20 minutes is saved! Thank you! 😉 Just hope it’s not 20 minutes that you could be sleeping or winning a competition (or three!) in. I don’t want to be feeling guilty! 😉
