About Me
I do not write professional, but I have written short stories and many poems over the years. I am currently working on three different stories, all in early stages of development. At least one of them I have plans to work it upwards to a novel. Using the right word is important to me, it is the difference between a lightning bug and a bolt of lightning. I have a few dictionaries. One on surnames, another one on culinary terms, musical terms, symbols, literary terms and even a dictionary of slurs and curses. I already subscribe to an online dictionary so this site might be overkill.

Favorite Word:

Defenstrate means to throw something or someone out of a window. I like this word because it is odd and it reminds me of the humorous moment when the King threw his son's lover out of the window in BraveHeart. But that word wasn't in this site's dictionary so I picked: Perhaps. Perhaps & Maybe are two of my most favorite words because you cannot pin them down to anything. It is never really a "yes" and couldn't possibly be a "no" for sure. The word can answer any question.

Least Favorite Word:

This word is an empty word that doesn't really mean anything when it is used. It is the polite word to use when you don't want to hurt someone's feelings and it is probably best to avoid it entirely unless there is just cause. Like when you want to make a character in a story to act polite when he truly doesn't care for what someone else has said or has done.

"The difference between the almost right word & the right word is really a large matter--it's the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning."
