Apostrophes, Part 1
A good restaurant requires cleanliness in every part of it's operation.
So, is that sentence correct?
it’s = contraction of it is or it has
its = possessive of it or belonging to it
So, if you can replace it's in your sentence with it is--and it still makes sense--then your word is it's. If you can't, then your word is its.
So, I ask again. Is the sentence in blue correct?
Extra credit question:

Word Processing Wars
Peggy Eddleman had a great blog post on Wednesday about which word processing system she uses. What about you?
Award 1 (unwarranted)People have been really kind to me lately. I even got an award I didn't qualify for. Barbara Kloss gave me this:
I don't qualify for her thoughtful gift because I have too many followers. However, I can pass it through to other, worthy recipients.
Here are the rules:
1. Thank the giver
Danke, Barbara (in keeping with the German theme).
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog--and follow them!
Melanie Jacobsen (she was my bootcamp instructor at Storymaker, and she rocks)
Jeff King over at Author's Union (he's such a kind poster)
Robin Weeks (I know, I pass a lot of stuff on to her, but she's an amazing writer, critique partner, and dang fun person--even for an attorney. Plus she didn't take me up on the bloomers meme)
Nancy S. Thompson (since she tagged me earlier with that unmentionables meme =D )
KT over at Out of My Mind
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
5. And most of all - have bloggity-blog fun!
J.A. Bennett over at A Book, A Girl, A Journey gave me this cute award:
Since this post is too long already and I've answered enough questions about myself with other awards, I will do one thing: Share a quote.
"I dwell in possibility." ~Emily Dickenson
Following are the folks I'm passing this award off to:
Kaylee Baldwin (she makes me smile a lot)
Jolene Perry (don't you love the cover to her book?)
Laura Josephsen (you've already heard me talk about her lots
ETA: That's embarrassing. This was supposed to post tomorrow. Dang Blogger. ROFL I changed the date again and now it says it's already Friday. If you're able to read this, you've time traveled to the future. Doesn't that make you feel special? Now, how will you get home?
