My trip to New York was fantastic and I really enjoyed meeting my agent and editor. Both very talented, kind, welcoming people. Also a little on the shy side, hence the reason I don't have photos to post. It just didn't seem like the thing to do.
Anyway, I came home to copy edits on With A Name Like Love
and I learned a lot
mostly, I suck rocks at commas
but also the difference between alright and all right
for example... in my novel, I have one character saying "Let's go" and the other says "Alright"
but that's apparently all wrong.
Alright is fine for everyday stuff like emails, blogs, letters etc but all right is what most editors will require in our manuscripts.
See, I thought all right would only be used when talking about a number...like he got the answers all right
I was wrong.
Isn't that interesting stuff?
So, tell me, which do you use? Alright or all right?
