Do you know what that picture is, above this post? I know, it’s two lines – a straight red one, and a curvy blue one. Any mathematicians amongst you know what it’s called?
It’s an ASYMPTOTE
What the dickens is an asymptote? It’s defined as: a line that a curve approaches, as it heads towards infinity.
So in our image above, the red line is the asymptote.
All very well and good, but what’s this got to do with writing?
