As you can tell from my last post, I'm cocooned in the editing process.
It's challenging and takes a serious amount of brain power, but I don't let myself forget for one second that I begged the universe for nine long years to be in this moment. It is a blessing.
So, today you'll have to suffer through another editorial related post.
It's a simple one... do you use "anyway" or "anyways" in your work?
anyway means anyhow or in any case
anyways is a colloquial expression and, while fine to use in conversation or on a chatty forum like our blogs, should probably not be used in our manuscripts.
This is different from the words toward and towards
with this duo, there is no specific right or wrong. Americans tend to use toward and our British neighbors often prefer towards. Whichever you choose to use in your work, just be consistent throughout.
Boring post today ... technical stuff, I know and I'm sorry. But, this is where my brain is right now.
Question: which do you use...anyway/anyways and toward/towards? have you ever thought about this before? are you doing something more exciting over there in your corner of the world? tell me, I'd love to know and do a little vicarious living :D
