The Elements of Style

Recently, I have made a conscious effort to do two things with my reading:

1) Read at least one non-fiction book a month for interest or pleasure.
2) Read at least one (of the many) books on writing I own each month.

Today, I finally read The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White. What an excellent reference book for correcting many common writing mistakes. I really wish I had read this book sooner. Only 85 pages long, it packs a lot of good advice in clear, concise language in few words. Definitely a must have/read if you write on a regular basis.

Grants Pass

Neat! I have Grants Pass stories set in:

  • Redmond, WA
  • Rhode Island
  • Minnesota
  • Lake Union, WA
  • The South
  • Northern CA along 101
  • North Carolina
  • San Francisco, CA/Grants Pass, OR

Still looking for more. I'm 2/3rd the way to my minimum word count!
