I Love This And I Haven’t Even Read It

I know I’m late, but to be fair, I haven’t seen this book anywhere else until today.

Sorry the picture got cut off. I’m an aspiring writer, not a hopeful photographer.

I have plenty of reading and rereading to do. Yes I love this little guy and I haven’t even read the entire thing yet. But I can’t wait.  The Elements Of Style

A Call For Help (Learning All 50 States In The United States)

This Canadian writer is attempting to learn all 50 states of America and their exact locations in a mere few days. It’s actually for a class, although, this geography test might be beneficial for my personal reference for future novels.

I am so proud to be Canadian as we only have 10 provinces and 3 territories to know. At least now I can sympathize with all the American (past, present, and prospective) students in the world.

So this is my call for help: do you have any ideas or mnemonics as to how to memorize them all?

I wonder if anybody can spell and locate all 50 states correctly (without cheating, of course)? I’m sure some of you out there do! Much respect to all those who have mastered the names and places of the states for fun or out of force.

The map below is for everybody’s reference and also to refresh everyone’s memory of the states in the United States. If you click on the image, the map enlarges and the quality is much better.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far. I’ll be back tomorrow updating you on my progress and a lighthearted post on writers.
