French Mistakes

You may have noticed that I was largely absent yesterday. I wasn't goofing off; I got plowed by a story. It's long and complicated, and I hope I'll have the time and energy to finish it. Anyhow, I had to do a little research for it, and I stumbled across this useful page about mistakes people make with the French language. I was very lucky to hit that one first, because I hadn't known that tidbit about capitalization; I would have made the obvious mistake. I figure other writers might find this page useful too. There's another one mentioned, too, that covers more advanced mistakes.

Generally Sponsored Poetry Poll for May 2009 Fishbowl

I finally found time to post the poetry poll from the May 5, 2009 fishbowl. Sorry it's a little late; I had some practical reasons for waiting, plus I've just been swamped with other projects. With $15 in the general fund currently, you can choose one $15 poem or one $10 poem.
