Being a Better Writer: Working in Important Little Details · 5:09pm Nov 28th, 2016

Right, so a quick one today. I’m actually typing this out at 1 AM. Why? Well, because remember a few weeks back when I had a dentist appointment that shoved Being a Better Writer back a few days? Well, I’ve got another one in ten hours (shudder). Which, given my enjoyment of dentists … You saw the “shudder” back there, didn’t you?

For the record, my dentist is a great guy with his bedside manner and the like. Crud, he even called me later in the evening of my last appointment to check how I was feeling. So that’s great. I just don’t like people messing with my teeth. Ever.

Anyway, that’s why I’m writing up a short, quick BaBW post right now, since I know I’m not going to be in the best of feelings later (my poor jaw). Better to get it over and done with rather than letting it be delayed.

In the meantime, if this post is too basic for you, or too short, consider upgrading to reading a copy of Colony! It’ll keep you occupied for action-packed hours on end! Makes a good gift, too!

Plug done, onto today’s topic: the important little details.

I can confirm that Colony makes a great gift. Got my dad to pick up a copy for himself, and he's really enjoying it so far... even if he remains convinced that "alright" is not actually a cromulent word. :derpytongue2:

Which is funny, because some dictionaries insist that "alright" is the new form of "all right" and should replace it in every case. Personally, I vary it based on the character; some people will say and think "alright" or "all right" based on their mood and the situation. Alright is a short, quick version of "all right" which puts the space in there.
