Internet Win of the Day: Oct. 24

Just something I thought was awesome for reals …

New York Times Draft article "Mad Dash" by Ben Yagoda
OK, full disclosure: It’s not the goofy humorist side of me Internet-winning the above article from “Draft,” an online series from The New York Times “about the art and craft of writing”; it’s purely my writer side.

There are few things I love to talk about more than writing (no, I’m not a virgin), and this post from author and professor Ben Yagoda about the M dash—yes, that piece of punctuation I just typed and am about to type again—captures that spirit perfectly.

I recognize my writing fascination places me in the minority, but I promise, if you read the article either by clicking here or on the image, you’ll get a kick out of it.

As for the Internet Win of the Day point that’s up for grabs, I’m going to split it between The New York Times’ “Opinionator” section (@NYTOpinionator), where “Draft” lives, and the author himself, Ben Yagoda (@byagoda).

Word nerds unite.
