  1. I just looked at your bio and it says you are an avid hiker and world traveler. You might like to read these short hitchhiking stories:

    • I haven’t updated my bio in a while. Sad to say, I had to give up hiking after 40 years of weekends in the Virginia / West Virginia mountains. My last long hike was on my 75th birthday and I almost didn’t get back.
      Thanks for your reading my blog!

      • Sad you had to give up the big hikes. Hopefully you can still get some walks in. Like Tim above, I’ve many hitchhiking entries on my blog. I’ve hitchhiked 13 countries since turning 60 (I’m 62 now), most recently through several states in Mexico, and hope that I can stay at it till 75 too! Hiking around town should suffice after that 🙂

  2. I was just looking at your About Terence Kuch (terencekuch /a/t/ ymail.com) – Memorable Fancies site and see that your site has the potential to get a lot of visitors.

  3. Just checking your explanation about how to use an -em dash in interrupted dialogue — thanks for the help! As for your advice about adding space around an em dash to help readers, I wanted to say that I was taught somewhere along the line (either in a desktop publishing or a graphic design course) that spaces shouldn’t be used when inserting the special symbol available in word processing programs. The only time spaces should be added are when the symbol is unavailable and the writer has to substitute two hyphens.

    • Printed books don’t use spacing before or after dashes, or before ellipses…. That I do is a matter of readability and aesthetics, with no particular authority to back me up.
