Four writing prompts: Perfection
Keep these docs for your writing business records

A quick glance at peak vs. peek vs. pique

Apparently Grammar some writers are not quite as sharp as they think, at least where peak, peek and pique are concerned.

A peak is a sharp point, like the high spot in sales on a chart or a mountain summit.

To peek, however, is a quick, often secretive look at something, such as a sneak peek at a new film or peeking through the window.

Pique is a verb that means to grab your attention, as in pique your interest.

An easy way to remember the difference is peek with a double e is a verb while pique with an i involves getting your interest.

Professional Book Editor: Having your novel, short story or nonfiction manuscript proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. I can provide that second eye.
