I'm reading Eats, Shoots & Leaves by Lynne Truss and it's got me wondering - do we need an apostrophe in the title Scribblers Cove?
When I titled this blog I looked up Sharks Cove and Pirates Cove on the internet, and about half the time there was an apostrophe and half the time there wasn't. I chose to go with no apostrophe because it looks cleaner.
But maybe I'm irritating all the punctuation sticklers out there.
I don't want to call it Scribbler's Cove because there's more than one scribbler here. The plural would be Scribblers' Cove, which I suppose would be okay. The apostrophe implies ownership. But without an apostrophe, scribblers becomes a perfectly acceptable descriptive word, right? This is the cove where scribblers are found.
What do you think? Any editors out there?
