Having just come from Europe where I attended Localschools and learned English as a foreign Language and now enrolled in Expository Writing a Course to him I was assigned byvirtueofmyscore on the Entranceexamination returned I roomed with Karla who ruthlessly upon reading Prose such as she that I would never be able to formulate an Intelligiblethought and put Pen to Paper declared.

This German run-on sentence structure—complete with routinely accepted compound words as long as supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, yet devoid of such reader aids as commas and semi-colons—characterized my literary style. Perfectly proper grammar embraced abroad, was wreaking havoc here! But I'm no quitter! And so Karla's spiteful words inspired rather than discouraged me...

I no longer put verbs at the end of sentences—in fact, some accuse me of not putting in any verbs! And I've dropped the hyphens from "never-the-less". But I refuse to succumb to all of Bill Gate's linguistic contrivances and liberally override Word's spell-check suggestions: "Travelling" is still correctly spelled with either one or two L's that (or which) can be followed by an "i".

I contributed human interest stories in my MOseying Along... column and was the Chief Editor of The Fortune Quest, a weekly newsletter distributed nationally. When teaching, I write my own class materials, ranging from informal student handouts to lengthy texts and treatises. Samples of some of my writings appear below: less...
