Santa Clauses are coming to town

  • “An elderly couple … buried in the snow … was found dead….”

(Please note that I’ve abbreviated this grim story for you, as my Christmas gift to you.)

A couple was found dead? Or were found dead?

You decide.

Yes, really. It’s your choice.

(Another Christmas gift. You’re welcome.)

As long as you maintain a consistent standard throughout the piece you’re writing, you get to make this rule yourself.

Peace on earth, good will toward writers.
