Not much blogging lately, partly because school has started, but also because I'm frantically proofreading and fact-checking my book. My head is filled with issues like whether it's "buses" or "busses" and "canvases" or "canvasses"...and the always thorny question of "Sacks's view" (going with The New York Times) or "Sacks' view" (going with how people speak).
I'd take this task lightly, except for the fact that I don't like finding typographical errors in a book. It says "author doesn't care." Plus, a couple of books in recent memory have been slammed by reviewers for factual errors. Not me...please!!!
So on and on it goes. With not much for entertainment except compulsively keeping track of my score over at 3 Quarks Daily. It seems my mother likes my blogging, I'm shamelessly partial to my own writing, and I have two fans. Sniff. Now about everybody else's entries (not even one of which I've read all the way through). Do these folks know what blogs are for? They're for getting in the mood to work, or taking a break from work. They. Shouldn't. Be. Work.
But that's OK...it's only money. Typos in the last sentence were deliberate. It. Was. For. Emphasis.
