Editing and Writing

I’m an Apostrophe Geek. Again.

Banning apostrophes? Why should readers have to guess what the writer meant?

It’s “its”, not “it’s”!

There’s a really simple trick for knowing when you’re supposed to use “it’s” and when you should use “its”. It’s almost deliciously easy, in fact. So. What do you think the trick is?

Punctuation IS important…

…as this LOL illustrates perfectly: Any questions?? (Thanks to my friend, OBC, from the Cheezburger site, for these photo captions.)

Do Plural’s Need Apostrophe’s? NO.

How do you take one item and indicate that you now have more than one? In other words, how do you make it plural? You add an “s.” Simplest thing in the world.
