Blog – Maggie Shelton

Inside Lingo

Maggie hits the nail on the head when she offers us her insight on how difficult it is when we write to describe processes, even ones we think we know all about, using the precise vocab that only an insider possesses. As a driving instructor, she has all the right expressions for traffic situations. I know I have often floundered when trying to write about even some very everyday happenings without having quite the right idiom.
