Re: First Person Info Dumping

"GUILTY!" the verdict proclaimed. I am so guilty of info dumping that I did not realize it until some wise person had the nerve to be an encourager with kindness. I am a detail-oriented person, who is often lost in the weeds. As my friend, Shelley, would tell me, "Come up for air, Judy." I can get b...

Re: More Commonly Misused Words

Great lesson Jan. I have a couple of pet peeves that I see used a lot. 1. Two, Too, To There are two of them. Timmy is coming with us, too. Suzie went to the library. People forget the second "o" when meaning "too" so frequently, it makes my skin crawl. 2, Their, There, They're Their house is on the...

Re: Writer Research

This is a very interesting topic. Thanks Yvonne (or do you prefer Vonnie?) for sharing your vast knowledge on researching a topic. Memories are a big resource for me. However I find myself returning to my old journals because memories bring visions of something I've written before. It might be a quo...

Re: Finger Pointing

This is great Jan. Your examples go from offensive, to inclusive, to personal ownership. The Catholic Church revised our Mass readings a couple of years ago from the inclusive "we" to the personal ownership of "I." It's not easy to learn all new Mass parts, but it is not impossible either. Where I'm...

Re: Be a Better Writer--MAN VS. NATURE CONFLICT

HI Jan, While reading your lesson, my 92 year old Aunt Angie came to mind immediately. She is on a quick decline with her memory. She will call me some days once or twice, or like last week, she called me seven times. I am deeply saddened by her diminishing mental capacities. This falls in the human...

Re: Be a Better Writer--Commas with conjunctions

As always, thanks Jan for your infinite wisdom. I wrote it without a comma, then later questioned myself. Your answer helps me grasp the comma usage in this scenario.
