Probably the most sensible post ever ...

... on the use of adverbs. Here, on Sally Zigmond's blog.

And a good one here from Nicola Morgan on punctuation.

I recommend you read both!

Just FYI - Both of these publishing houses e-publish Pocket Novel lengths. I realize its not magazines, but if you want to branch out, its a good place to start:

They don't pay advances but they pay royalties every quarter after publication (so published in Oct/Nov/Dec, you'd be paid at the end of March). The nice thing is, the pocket books stay on the website garnering sales throughout the year.

Check it out.

Sally, I've seen so much complete rubbish spouted about adverbs, yours made a refreshing change. Thanks again for it.

Just read both posts. Handy articles to keep refering back to when not sure of the correct convention.
Thanks.
