A comment on my previous post by Dianne of the blog Schmidley’s Scribblings made me aware that I was guilty of something that aggravates me when I encounter it: references to a person, place, or event without enough detail necessary for identification or clarification. After all, if you are writing something and publish it, you are in essence issuing an invitation to a potential reader.
In a June 26 post I mentioned a trip planned for the most visited national park in the United States. That was it, no detail about which park. I am regularly guilty of doing things that irritate me in others. At least it keeps me humble, except when I’m not!
Okay, Dianne, that park would be the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee and North Carolina, and that is where husband Walter and I are right now! Actually, we are in a coffee shop in Gatlinburg, TN, about 7 miles from Elkmont Campground where we have been camping in the national park since Wednesday, June 29. More to come!
