"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
Oh, wow. I had no idea that site was there. Thank you from the bottom of my grammarian heart for providing the link.
"Time yet again for a rousing battle against our formidably orange opponent, The Chicago Manual of Style."Is that what the fan clib T-shirts will say? If so, I want one.
Fan *club*. I meant 'fan *club*'.Sigh.
The Chicago Style of Writing is fine providing you're an American. I have to change my writing and spelling to suit agents, editors and publishers if I hope to publish my work.
I don't think that's necessary, Ms. Martin. I was told they won't reject you for that. I'm not sure if you'd have to edit for that afterwards, though.Ms. Reid, could you shed some light on this? Thanks for any help!Myself, I use Canadian spelling and style, for the most part. I know the CP Stylebook very well (I'm also a technical writer), though I've read the AP stylebook just for fun. Yes, I know I'm strange. Haven't been able to afford Chicago yet though, but it's on my Amazon wish list.
Janet - Thank you again for the kind praise, our ears are burning! We'll talk to the publisher about getting those T-shirts printed...- The Abbeville Team
P.S. You pray to Helvetica too?
