Author Essay

This book isn’t just useful to people who want to hone their writing skills; it is also useful to people in publishing — as I found out when I looked at a copy. As someone who sees a lot of copyediting, and sees and does a lot of proofreading, some of the examples in this book are really very helpful. One of my favorites is Chapter Six: Usage — very good for those of us who occasionally forget the difference between, say, "burglary" and "robbery"…
