  • William McCorbin Well, I'd love to tackle dangling participles. In editing manuscripts (fiction) this seems to be one of the most bothersome habits I see at an overwhelming and pervasive level. A dangling participle is a verb splice without an associated noun. (example:) Dangling Participle: Standing by the sink, the woman was angry that she had to wash dishes after she thought she was through. The above phrase is difficult to read and becomes a passive and quite redundant method of writing. Readers' minds are likely to get tired of reading this same tempo of wording continuously through a piece. Correction: The woman stood by the sink. Though she thought she was through washing dishes, more appeared as if by magic. I put some poetic license into the correction example to show more than tell what was happening with the dishes. It gives a fuller image in the mind of the reader and leaves off that pesky dangling participle. And... That is my writing/grammar blog contribution. Will

  • David Wolf My first published novel, Mindclone, has garnered dozens of rave reviews. If the idea of having your brain scanned into a computer and living forever appeals to you, you might find my novel of interest. --Of course living digitally isn't quite the same thing as living the way you do now.
