Any word you have to hunt for in a thesaurus is the wrong word. There are no exceptions to this rule.

    I saw this today too. He’s right about this. IMNSHO.

    Kinda freaked out about the “welcome back, Cat.” thing above the comment form…aaarghhhh…I don’t remember installing a webcam! 😀

    Stephen King just hiked up a notch in my opinion.

    His On Writing is one of the best advice books I’ve read. It sits on my desk with my regular references.

    I second the recommendation of On Writing. Somewhat surprisingly, it’s one of the best books there is about how to write.

    @ cat – the comment box greets you? it must like you because it never talks to me.

    @ lyrical fool – yeah, i’ve never been a huge king fan (not that he’s not a good writer, it’s just that he’s so famous nobody has really bothered to edit him for the past 3 decades and every good writer desperately needs a good editor!).

    so i had the same reaction of my opinion being bumped up a notch.

    @ cv & kuri – i’ll have to check that book out to have it come so highly recommended.
