🎪 Role up. ❌ Roll up. ✔
I’m on a role. ❌
Over the last few years, I’ve gone from one day a week of editing, to two, and, from September, I’ll be up to three. 👏 Go me!
And a bonus #EagleEyedCherry #writingtip is to remind you of the different spellings and uses of the homophone roll/role.
⭕ Roll = a forward motion, such as somersaulting. Alternatively, a bread roll. (Bap, barm, cob, teacake, stottie – we can open that can of worms if you want?!) Or something cylindrical, e.g. a roll of tape.
👩🏫 Role = the part you play; the function you assume, e.g. your work role.
❓ What about rollout vs roll out?
🚀 A rollout is a noun (sometimes styled as a roll-out, depending where you look.) It’s the unveiling or the launching or the scaling up of something.
📈 Whereas roll out (as two words) is a verb: to roll out. You roll out a product. You will roll out a service. You rolled out a system. It’s the action, the doing.
🔎 So, I’m rolling out (or launching) more hours of editing.
🎪 And I’m calling on you, in the style of a circus ringmaster, to roll up, roll up! Join me! Come with your manuscript in hand to Cherry Edits’ box office. Book your slot, now. Get ready to define your new role. You’re a writer, Harry. 🧙♀️
