Odds and ends

Here are a few things I spotted yesterday that are worth a look:

  • The origins of error, by John McIntyre. The errors John speaks of are “rules” that don’t exist—things like split infinitives and ending sentences with prepositions (both okay, but proscribed by the misinformed). How do these myths get started? John explores some possible answers.
  • Proofreading tips, by Ken Adams. Adams is a contract-drafting expert, but his tips apply to any type of writing.
  • Ideas for blog posts, by Lynn Gaertner-Johnston. If you write a blog, you probably hit the occasional creative dry spell. Lynn’s ideas may help you get through those dry spells and keep your blog’s content fresh.
