With my latest editing project keeping me so busy, blog posts will be on the short side for the next week or two. So it seems like a good time to mention this.
The blog has been subtitled “crude inky blab” ever since the very first post, seven years ago. But why that particular phrase? It’s not just a little self-deprecating description. Those three words were precisely chosen for a very specific reason. I would never have used “crude inky chatter,” for instance.
Can anyone tell what’s special about the phrase? I’ll give the answer tomorrow if nobody gets it, but you don’t need any special knowledge to figure it out — you have all the information you need.
