It started with a simple idea. When Connie Giordano and Al Martine, owners of the TechWhirl website, invited me to write an article, I decided to collect some of the redundant phrases I ran across in my editing projects, phrases that made me smile. Why not share the pleasure?
“That one’s going on the list,” I found myself saying day after day.
After the TechWhirl article was published in October of 2013, I couldn’t stop. The list grew. And grew. I smiled every time I read or heard (or said) things like this:
tall in stature
long-term rather than short-term
mutual benefit for all involved
“That one’s going on the list.”
Others caught the fever. The phrases rolled in from Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Listly--even from across the dinner table. Two hundred. Three hundred. Six hundred. A new book called to me.
Now it calls to you.
