Grammar Friday

Today’s two grammar tips:

  • Eliminate unnecessary words. Mark Twain said it best: “Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very’; your editor will delete it, and the writing will be just as it should be.”
  • You don’t wile away time. You while it away. (It takes a while to do so, right?)
