The new school year has begun, which always feels to me like a time for me to start new things, or in this case, restart old things.

Back in 2009, one of my critique group friends called with an urgent punctuation question. It was something pretty simple about quotes within quotes. This got me wondering if any of my blog followers have burning questions about some matter of grammar, usage, or style.

From there, I started a little series called Editor-on-call, in which I answer your burning questions. It has been a long time since I put out a call for more questions, so I thought I'd do so again. I want to keep this blog relevant and a helpful resource for you, dear readers.

Perhaps first you'd like to know what topics I've already covered. There are quite a few, as it happens, though this hardly exhausts all the concerns I hear come up at my critique group and in the author collaborative I belong to.




Tell me, readers, what burning questions do you have about grammar, punctuation, or fiction writing problems you don't know how to fix?

  1. Hi, Laurel! Congrats on NEVER GONE--I was away from the blog world when that good news happened! I am working my way back into blogging, so I had to stop by and say HELLO. :)

  2. The post on the subjunctive mood is very thorough. This is the area where I find educated people making mistakes.

    1. Thanks, Mark. Any questions about other grammar issues? I'm hoping for some topic inspiration, so ask away!
