After eight years of teaching at the graduate level, I grew increasingly intolerant of writing designed to make the writer look smart, clever, or edgy. I know this work when I see it; I've written a fair amount of it myself. But writing that's motivated by the desire to give the reader a pleasurable experience really is best.
"The Scorching of California": So, this is properly terrifying . . .
"9 Things You Should Really Know About Anglicanism": Useful info here.
"10 Words We've Forgotten How to Pronounce": fellow word nerds, click here!
"That Way We're All Writing Now": Oh, and here, too.
"A Brief Defense of Infant Baptism": as someone who is still coming to grips with the practice, I found this helpful.
"Not Angry: At Least Not for Long": on a hard virtue.
"Introverts and Extroverts Brains Really Are Different, According to Science": more personality fun!
Finally, on the very important practice of nosing and tasting whisky ("and this tells you . . . absolutely nothing"). Enjoy the accent!
