Judith and Ralph met in 1973, fell in love, got married, had two beautiful children, raised them in a rural suburb of Detroit, Michigan, sent them off to college, watched them become independent successful young people and now as a couple experiencing empty nest and nearing retirement began planning their future. The summer evenings were just right for swinging on their new wooden swing. They often found themselves reminiscing about the past and planning for the future.
Then suddenly one beautiful summer evening, all that changed.
Spiritual events, synchronicity, meditation, journaling and the importance of connecting with others, stepping outside of her comfort zone helped her learn to walk the path of grief.

Always keeping in mind the last words, her husband Ralph wrote to their daughter Holli in an e-mail, "The Future is Bright."

That is only the beginning of problems ampersands cause for editors, and publishers of all kinds. Many of the difficulties they cause go unnoticed except by the publishing pros we would all like to impress like agents, librarians, bookstore event directors, and the acquisition editors at Knopf! That's why I added a new section to the second edition of the winningest book in my #HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers, The Frugal Editor. Because ampersands seem to be so popular these days, it's especially important for editors and authors who publish books to know a little about their history, how to use them, and how gatekeepers and readers of Lynn Truss's famous zero-tolerance approach to grammar might view them.
