McMurdo’s Camp Style Manual

Filed under: 1 — Matilda @ 12:50 pm

Housekeeping item:  When writing a non-fact type article, it is sometimes necessary for the writer to refer to himself.  There are different ways of doing this, and to this author, they all seem a little clumsy.  I don’t like first-person singular, and first person plural seems better but has its own shortcomings.  A better way  has not made itself known to our writing staff, however, and we are aware that I have not been consistent.  A standard needs to be established.

We have decided that first-person collective (plural) will be the standard used at McMurdo’s Camp.  We at McMurdo’s Camp will refer to ourself(ourselves) as “we” or “us”.
