Cognitive Connection, May 28

Cognitive Connection. Thinking. Image courtesy of stock.xchng®Like many people in the U.S., I’m taking advantage of the three-day Memorial Day weekend to unplug. I’ll be spending time with my family, giving my laptop a chance to cool down for a few days.

In the mean time, here are a few reads for your (long) weekend:

  • Editor Devil Illegal Stacking Ahead I like Christine Fairchild’s breakdown of this particular writing issue so much, that I’ll forgive her the use of two exclamation points on one sentence. Seriously good advice here.
  • Lisa Romeo Writes Stuff My (Writing) Students Say, Part III Lisa’s recent series that answer student questions (and frustrations) regarding the writing process is interesting and helpful. This one offers tips on revising, yet feeling married to your words.

Your turn. Any great reads that you’d like to share with your fellow readers? Print counts, too, it doesn’t have to be something online. If you’re hooked on a new book or loved an article or essay in a magazine, include it here. Please share in the comments below. Thanks!
