Language and writing...

Definitions:  No problem -- an idiom -- and tits up, which in this context was an anachronism.

Meta Monday: Smallclothes.  Which the writer brought up because of history, and yes, GRRM.  Heh.

Recognizing Adjectives (a quiz).

Many helpful links via Ann Leckie, such as how not to cut adjectives and the evils of passive voice.

From the Subversive Copy Editor herself:  Wannabe Editors: Can You Pass a Proofreading Test?

The importance of getting paid when freelance, as Worth Flowers by E. Catherine Tobler attests.
