I took down this blog for a while, in part due to the theft of my lap-top, in part due to wondering if saying what I think makes me mouthy as well as ignorant, so I ought to stick to what I know, ie, not very much.
No matter. I happened on a piece that I am evangelical about sharing. In fact, I’d like anyone who has to deal with writers to be locked in a room and made to read and agree with it, just so you understand what we’re trying to do. The piece is called A manifesto for the simple scribe: the 25 commandments for journalists. OK, the title says ‘my’ and I’ve changed it to ‘the’, so sub me.
Or, better yet, tell me what you think about it.
