Favourite Blog Posts: Zeroing in on Words
Zeroing in on Words is a blog post from The Editor’s Blog, 12 June 2014.
Every time I go to blog about this post I get distracted and that’s one of the reasons I like it so much. It’s inspiring. It sends me straight to my current WIP to sift and sieve through the words looking to see that I have exactly the right ones in the right places.
The post contains a simple, succinct example of how word choice and position can make significant subtle differences. I could hear the wind whipping through the trees. This one sentence is twisted and tweaked to show so many nuances.
I admire blog content that is not only evergreen, as useful today as it was a year ago, but content that every time I read it, teaches me anew.
