Last night, 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 you have burning questions about some matter of grammar, usage or style. If so, please drop me a line at lonexylophone (at) yahoo (dot) com. I'll address your questions in future posts.

My first editor-on-call post will address one of the more abused forms of punctuation, the apostrophe. Stay tuned!

  1. Uh-oh. I'm in trouble now. I love the apostrophe - probably too much! ;-)

  2. I'm looking forward to all savvy grammar advice. :) As you know I tread on those waters myself, my next post coming next week, but it's more about my own pet peeves and learning as I go. I'm certainly not a grammar expert.

  3. Not to worry, Shannon. I hope to merely clarify how to use it without being snarky. Some usages are still in flux, which is where "style" (as journalists use the term) comes into play.

    I'm curious to see which points you tackle, Elle!

  4. I love you You are now officially a life line.
