A style guide, according to me

Here is how you spell some words, in my world.

-Yeah

and

-Yay

If you deviate even slightly from these standards of excellence, please consider yourself judged. Even though there is absolutely no authority other than my own that dictates these rules.

OH MY GOSH! I completely agree.

One should never confuse "ya" for "yeah"--that bugs me.

Kristin said...

This is the appropriate style guide for every world. There has to be some authority about never writing Yea unless it's scriptoral?

PS. Thanks for the book recs! And the tip about Goodreads-- I'm creating an account right now!

I've just been catching up on your blog, and you crack me up something fierce. BTW, I miss skirt kickball.

"ya" for "yeah" really bugs me. They are very very different. But agreed. "Yeah" is not excited at all, whereas "YAY!" screams excitement!

So it appears there is more authority than just the "annointed one". Bully for you, or is that beaully for yeau?
