Something helpful I found on the sfwa website

Here you go, you! Who are you? What the Hell? No one! Oh well. Enjoy if you are someone.

Actually I can't get it to copy correctly so here's the link:

It's a very handy article about English usage and abusage. It covers everything not covered in the extremely handy "Elements of Style" by Strunk and White. Now, I basically logged in here to procrastinate so, leave me alone, internet! I have to get back to work! I'm re-writing a story, making use of a great deal of advice from Paul McAuley. If you haven't read anything by Paul McAuley, I recommend this:

My favorite stuff of his, though, is in a printed collection called King of the Hill. You can get it fairly cheap on Amazon. http://www.amazon.co.uk/King-Hill-Paul-McAuley/dp/1857230086/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1243554682&sr=1-2

Now stop making me procrastinate! People will only read this blog if I ever write any FICTION that's worth reading. Blogging is really just for posterity... maybe a little prosperity if I'm lucky.
