Style Manuals

As a novelist, I’ve learned to consult my thick copy of Chicago Manual of Style, but now that I’m writing for New Christian Voices–and doing a bit of editing online as well–I’m diving into AP style.

Wow! There are a lot of minute differences between the two, so I’m having to stay alert.

But that’s okay, because I’m committed to being a professional. And professionals aren’t stubborn or sloppy.

What are you doing to pursue professionalism in your writing? (And can you tell which style I’m using in this blog?)
