Today’s Notes: March 9

Birthdays: William Cobbett, Vita Sackville-West, Mickey Spillane,

Tips and Teasers: A redundancy is the use of a word or words that are not necessary and can be eliminated without losing the meaning of the sentence. “That” is often a redundant word. Go over your manuscript. Are there any places where “that” can be eliminated?

Thought for the day: “To note an artist’s limitations is but to define his talent. A reporter can write equally well about everything that is presented to his view, but a creative writer can do his best only with what lies within the range and character of his deepest sympathies.” – Willa Cather
