Splitting Infinitives

Standard

Not so much like splitting a wooden door on a murderous rampage…but kind of. The ax used above can illustrate the level of annoyance felt by a queried agent or editor, or writing teacher…or reader…or critique groupies screaming “don’t use adverbs!!”

Listen, if getting an ax in the head, face or wherever it may land is a possibility you would rather eliminate permanently from your already challenging life, then please read the article below and follow the wisdom therein.

About Katie Thayne, Author

Katie Thayne (that's me, kind of, seeing as how Katie Thayne is a pen name) is an up and coming author (or so I'd like to think). I have just released my first book, Ms. Impractical Pants, and am currently working on its sequel. I don't have a name for that one yet, so let's just call it Sequel for now. If I'm not working on Sequel, I'm scratching down ideas for the other half dozen or so book ideas swirling around in my brain. Okay, that's a lie, I don't write them down as much as I should, but I still think them, so that should count for something, right? I live in beautiful Moab, Utah and when I'm not writing- on second thought, I won't go there. Let's pretend I sit in a quite office hunched over a keyboard and do nothing but write. The most important thing to know about me, is just because I write doesn't mean I can punctuate. That's why I have an editor- but not for this blogging stuff. Editors ain't cheap and I'm not J.K. Rowling...yet. But I hope that won't keep you from reading my blog.
