While cover on this North Carolina legislative news and research tips, Phyllis Pickett of our North Carolina drafting staff has started a new blog entitled “Law Writer: Legislative Drafting and Analysis in the Real World” covering the more technical aspects of law writing. Drop by, won’t you? Looks like it will give a good treatment to the science of law writing, while I continue to cover the arts.
Phyllis even has a twitter feed on drafting linked to her blog. I have trouble figuring out twitter. Seems to be like CB radio on a keyboard. Breaker, breaker.
Her great quote from her Twitter feed today appropos of drafting: “The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug. – Mark Twain’
