I think the English language is fascinating, which makes being a freelance writer even more fun. I love to play with words, coin new ones and find out what old ones mean. That’s why my gig at DailyWritingTips is perfect. I’ve been writing for that site on and off over the last year, and usually publish a couple of posts each week. Some are short posts about interesting linguistic stuff, while others are longer. Here’s a list of what I’ve written in the first quarter of 2008:
- Days: A History Of Time
- Averse, Adverse
- Whom Are You Writing For?
- For Want Of A Letter … Tic, Tick
- Positions, Please
- A Sweet Story About Marmalade
- For Want Of A Letter … Bated, Baited
- Laugh About Writing
- Street Slang For Scriptwriting
- Months: A History Of Time
- Fun With Words: Palindromes
- Warning: Microsoft Did Not Invent Grammar!
- The Unfortunate Dys
- Wether, Weather, Whether
- Speaking Of Eponyms

- Onomatopoeia (it is not something to eat)
- Medium, Media

I’m pleased to say that I usually have a couple of my posts featured in the most popular lists each month.
