As for the weekend puzzle, this one was clearly an easy solve to many of you super sleuths , e. The heart of the story. It makes sense to me. This is not to say that mangled English is a new phenomenon. My mother woulda, like, killed me. Throughout my childhood, one of her friends liked to tell about an incident from when I was maybe four. Or is it a tic? Another locution, uptalk, which was most noticeable in the s but has not completely vanished, also conveys the impression of uncertainty or tentativeness to the detriment of credibility, or perhaps more accurately, authority.
Your speaker for today? I recently saw the concert movie of the TV show Glee. As a songwriter myself, I always pay close attention to lyrics. A short story is to a book what a sprint is to a marathon. Both are worthwhile and fun, but you need to choose just one because training for one actually harms your ability to do the other. With due respect to Mike, I couldn't disagree more with his statement that training for short stories harms your ability to write novels and vice versa.

When I looked it up, I found that the common usage most of us know is only the second definition. Some crime fiction writers are masters at varying their voice. Ruth Rendell is one: her Inspector Wexford novels sound completely different from the psychological suspense standalones she writes as Barbara Vine. Other successful and popular writers have a voice that works and that readers love, but it seems to be the only voice they have.
To my ear, Robert B. I am both fond of and grateful to the editor who worked on my forthcoming Death Will Extend Your Vacation , third in the series featuring recovering alcoholic Bruce Kohler. My first-person protagonist is a streetwise New Yorker with a smart mouth and a not too well concealed heart of gold.
My editor, bless her heart, is a lady, and one who knows her grammar. Being a New Yorker with a smart mouth myself, neither would I. John Watson, yes. Amelia Peabody, yes. His bushy black eyebrows almost met above a massive beak of a nose. I doubted even a broad smile would make more than a centimeter of breathing room in the middle. Much later in the book, Bruce and his sidekick Barbara are reviewing possible witnesses and suspects. Guess what appears on page of the printed book.
My final example, from the same book, involves an error, also introduced in the final post-galley proofreading, that in striving for grammar makes a hash of meaning. Instead of describing it, I offer the two versions—the first as submitted and passed through several stages of editing with my approval, the second in print. Labels: editing , Elizabeth Zelvin.

Murder is a Family Business
Human resources consultants? Nope again. Robert H.
While Management Resources is a full-service investigations firm, they came to MWA to talk about one of their specialties, executive protection. Lesser lights—such as the numerous members of the Saudi royal family—as well as celebrity actors and athletes—make do with private firms like this one.

When a client hires them for protection during, say, a three-day visit to New York, the firm starts by getting a detailed schedule and sending out an advance team of two or three operatives to analyze, measure, map, and if possible photograph the details of every venue the client expects to visit, especially the approaches: the principal, as the subject is called, is most vulnerable when entering and leaving the venue.
The team that protects the principal during the visit is thoroughly briefed beforehand. Unscheduled stops are strongly discouraged, though if the principal insists, the team adapts. According to Rahn, the way protection teams work changed significantly as a result of the shooting of President Reagan.
When it happened, only one bodyguard got the President into a car and away from the scene, while all the others converged on the shooter. The car was headed back to the hotel when a bloody froth at the mouth, which the protector luckily recognized as indicating a collapsed lung, sent them to the hospital instead.
After explaining how it works, Rahn called on eight volunteers, including me, to perform a demonstration. I had the right front position in the formation, which made me the person who would tackle the attacker, if trouble came from the right. Principals who want them to walk the dog and pick up their laundry—actors are the worst offenders--get nipped in the bud.
Rahn admitted that he and his staff, all retired law enforcement, have had to unlearn their instinct to go after the guy with the gun. What impressed me as a participant was how broad the range I had to keep my eye on was, even though I had to cover only one quadrant of the space around the principal. The National Arts Club, an immense old mansion on Gramercy Park with multiple approaches to every room and plenty of shadows and hiding places, made a great demonstration venue.
Waiters and bartenders came and went. On a job, they would have been investigated in advance. At one point during the role play, a door on the left opened unexpectedly, and a brand new staff person appeared—fortunately not packing a gun.
Everybody agreed that the audience had more questions for the speakers than at any other talk in recent memory. In other words, Kevin Costner definitely should not have slept with Whitney Houston.
