Chapter One Think! Though this rule is general rather than specific, discussion of it gives us the chance to take a sort of overview of our subject. No time? In any case, spend some time with the following examples.

I read a trilogy and a horror anthology, finished one serial on Serial Box, started the final season of another and began a third, read the newest in a mystery series I love, and had enough real life to keep things interesting. The first book in that trilogy is Crazy Rich Asians. Here the plot shifts from Rachel and Nick to his cousin and her husband, and to the stories of other of the secondary characters. By now, they all felt like old acquaintances, and it was wonderful to catch up on their stories.
The focus is heavily on Nick and his grandmother in this one. It ties up the series nicely. The whole series took me about two and a half days to read and was well worth the time spent. I was — I admit — predisposed to like at least two stories in the book because I know the writers, Hal Johnson and Patrick Thomas. Full Disclosure: I also know the publisher slightly.
The opinions herein are my own, however. Much to my surprise, while I loved both stories from my friends, I was more impressed with several of the other stories. Again, while horror is not my jam, this was an excellent example of contemporary horror. Oh — and all the stories are set in New York — either state or city — a big plus for me. I want to find out what happens to several of the protagonists whose endings are not shown in the last chapter. It covers the year , in 12 chapters — one per month.
Each chapter begins with an overview of the events taking place that month and then goes into the story. If you are a history fan, you will find it quite interesting, and worth subscribing to. I have already read the first three installments, and have the fourth queued up on my computer.
In September, I will be attending a conference for people who are in the planner community — which is one of the groups that ties in with the bullet journal communities. I met some of the other folks who will be attending this evening, and they seem to be quite friendly and welcoming. At least I will see a few familiar faces when I get there.
So that is where things are at for August.

He illustrates dreadful things that people do with apostrophes, problems with subject and verb agreement, the misuse of former, the incorrect use of whom, dangling participles, malapropisms, and more. As his subtitle makes clear, his examples are mostly taken from the media, which I feel sometimes shines the spotlight too brightly on errors made by broadcasters and journalists. Theirs is a stressful occupation with constantly looming deadlines in which it is all too easy to make a slip that cannot be recalled and corrected. Mr Parrish would, I suspect, argue that a more thorough knowledge of the basics would prevent the most egregious errors.
