Are you an editor or proofreader that needs resources for editing and proofreading LGBTQ+ content? Then here’s some books and websites that you might find helpful!
Emails, texts, tweets and status updates. They are everywhere in our lives and so, increasingly, they are finding their way into novels.
But exactly how do you show this emails, texts, tweets and the like in your own writing?
Many people believe that English is full of rules that must not be broken. They are slaves to finding the “correct” version.
Whilst many words do have “correct” versions, there are many examples of words that need choices to be made and then applied consistently. Take, for example, the word “banister”, a pretty ordinary noun and one that you wouldn’t think twice about. Right?
You’d think – for someone who works with books and stories all the time – that reading for pleasure would be an easy thing.
But, somehow, in lockdown, that just doesn’t seem to be happening. I don’t know if it’s the pressure of trying to find new clients (I have to pay the bills!) or the constant updating from government and rolling news bulletins, but I’ve been finding really difficult to switch off.
Who knows, maybe this will strengthen me to start a novel?
