I fancy myself a writer.
Obviously. I am doing this writing thing. Every. Stinking. Day. For. This. Entire. Year.
I write. I publicly put it out there. And, you, My Loyal Reader indulge me.
Do I refer to you as “my Loyal Reader,” or as “My Loyal Reader?” Consistency counts!!
I need to check my style guide.
Wait! Oh no. THERE IS NO STYLE GUIDE!!!
Do I use the Oxford comma? Is email one word or is it e-mail? Have I settled on website? Dateline cities?
One certainty, I never, ever, ever allow a colon prior to any bulleted list. ESPECIALLY wrong on subheads. That just pisses me off.
Should I go back through the past ten years of this madness and make sure I am consistent in what I call things?
Am I Doc Think? DocThink? Dr. Think? This is becoming existential.
