Our Promise to Authors
Every day we work with writers to shape their manuscripts for publication. We also evaluate submissions, read our friends’ pages, give second opinions to other editors -- in short, we confront a whole lot of manuscript pages for a whole lot of reasons. But here’s what we don’t do. We don’t -- and we never will -- pull examples directly from any of these manuscripts. The editor-author relationship depends on mutual trust and respect, and we won’t ever compromise that. We might get ideas for blog posts in the course of our interaction with writers and manuscripts, but all examples are ours, with the occasional exception of literary sources.
I really dislike Strunk & White, and this is exactly why!
(I also fail to understand why people recommend it to people who have trouble with grammar. But, then, maybe I skipped that section because my subjects agree with my verbs.)
Good find. "Minimalist style becomes minimalist thought, and that is a problem." Yes. Plus, I've never been a big fan of knife-edged parts in hair.
