Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
There's no shortage of people here who have been trade published. (Note that the word is "trade," as in the publishing trade, not "traditional," which gets thrown around a lot by scammy pay-to-publish people.)
Trade is the hill I will die on. I know language changes, but that's my hill.I know. But "traditional" and "trad" (especially "trad") still make me twitch every time.
Derail/Mine is "by accident" instead of "on accident," and yes I know "on accident" isn't new but it's still wrong.
(OP: I'm trade pubbed too, and it sucked, so there's that data point. )
"Trad" makes me twitch, too. But with so many industry professionals using "traditional," I don't see the point of insisting that it's not correct.I know. But "traditional" and "trad" (especially "trad") still make me twitch every time.
