Actually, I can’t reblog this because it came off the Writers & Artists blog, a non-WordPress blog, but here is the link.
David Savill, Programme Director of the St Mary’s University Creative Writing MA and the author of this post, is writing about those darned rules for writers and how they don’t work, well, not all the time anyway. He has just brought out a book They Are Trying To Break Your Heart (Bloomsbury, 2016) which looks like a very interesting read.
A Small Grammar Point! As I was writing the paragraph above, I wondered about the words not all the time. I always believed that all the time was correct British usage and to insert of – as in, all of the time – was American usage. Anybody any ideas?
Btw, I’m posting on the More Than Writers blog tomorrow (13 April), about humour. Do take a look. (Andrew Chamberlain is on there today, but he’s always good read too.)
