Cam Virgola is the winner of a year’s subscription to both The Chicago Manual of Style Online and Scientific Style and Format! And we love Cam’s dream app:
“A Word plug-in that would show the author on mouseover why I made that particular change so he or she wouldn’t have to ask me or insist on keeping the problem. I wouldn’t have to tell the plug-in why I did certain things; it would always just know.”
Your dream app . . .
If you could design the perfect app for writers or editors, what would it be? What chore would you love to automate with a tap on your keyboard or phone? Magic is allowed!
Describe your ideal app in the comments section below and you’ll be automatically entered in a drawing for a free year of The Chicago Manual of Style Online, which includes full access to both the 15th and 16th editions and full access to Scientific Style and Format.
The contest closes at 11:59 p.m. (CST) on Tuesday, June 7. We’ll choose a winner by lottery from all the entries and announce it here on Wednesday, June 8.
