A Niche Idea: Discovering Your Writing Specialty

It’s counter-intuitive: how could limiting your options result in more work? As a Writer and a freelancer, you’re always reluctant to close a door, not knowing if there’s a window available to open. But aligning yourself with a niche will only increase your employability; after all, it’s hard for specialized industries to find a person with both the writing talent and the expertise to write knowledgeably about a subject.

The Team That Plays Together, Stays Together

The thing with work is that even when you love your job, it’s work. I love editing with a shameless passion (and I will throw down over Oxford commas and dangling modifiers), but day after day of the same thing, no matter how enjoyable, can become tiresome. Luckily, I work for an awesome company, and we’re more like a team than an office. And, although I’m no expert on sports, I’m fairly sure teams generally […]

Word Criminals: What’s Your Record?

Word Criminals: What's Your Record?

Editors and logophiles the world over cawed in abject delight and hilarity when, on July 15th, “Weird Al” Yankovic released the second song on his new album. “Word Crimes,” a spoof of Robin Thicke’s macabre “Blurred Lines,” is a harsh criticism of language abusers in a modern world dominated by hasty and careless communication.
