    Glad you’re back.

    Shouldn’t the name of your website be “The Writers’ Technology Companion?”

    The companion technology offered by this website belongs to all of us writers, not just to one writer.

    Writer should be a plural possessive, as in “Writers'” not a singular possessive, as in “Writer’s.”

    My two cents.

    Craig: The thought did occur to me. In the end, I was going for the idea of those old-fashioned books a person might keep at their bedside, in their workshop, or on their desk with titles like “The Woodworker’s Guide to Finishing” or “The Fisherman’s Companion” or (for a real example) “The Writer’s Handbook”. Since reading and writing are both solitary affairs, no matter how many people do them, I thought the singular was appropriate.

    That’s not to suggest, though — and I hope the title doesn’t — that I’m not trying to be inclusive of all writers! A strong case can certainly be made for the plural, it’s just not the way I decided to go with the title.

    The possessive apostrophe can be a real killer. Sometimes, there is no ‘correct’ answer.
