You didn't really think I'd continue the story of the two nine-year-old boys today, did you? No way. You have to wait. The world needs TIP TUESDAY.
I'm not editing now, so I have time to blog. I like blogging, but someone please send me a book to edit. I'm available for a reasonable price. Ask Willy Dunne Wooters. I'm what's known as a cheap date even if the invitation is to edit.
All right. That's enough self-advertising for now.
First, we discuss there. If I've edited anything for you, then you know I'm prone to telling my clients that there makes a poor subject for your sentence.
Example: There are police officers all over that crime scene.
Let's change it to Police officers are all over that crime scene.
Can you think of a way to make it even better? I bet you can. How about using a stronger verb?
Second, let's talk about there's. There's makes me crazy because I see it used incorrectly all the time.
THERE'S = THERE IS
Example of use that makes me crazy: There's hikers climbing the mountain.
Is is singular. Hikers is plural. If you insist on using there as your subject, then please get your there's correct. How would you improve our sample sentence?
Okay. I think I've fussed enough for today. Somebody hurry up and hire me.
Infinities of love,
