English fail

There’s nothing quite like opening yourself up for ridicule. Here’s what I wrote in the post below:

There’s plenty of good stuff among the winners, among them Lane DeGregory’s story in the St Petersburg Times, whose story about an abandoned 7-year-old girl managed to strike the difficult balance the heartbreaking subject matter and broader questions about psychology & child development.

This coming from someone who was longlisted for a writing prize. Good grief.

I can assure you that the piece linked to remains very good and worthy of your time, even if that disastrously-written description failed to do it justice.

You can see why I’m not writing anything substantial today, can’t you?!
