Webster's is my new best friend...

*ggg*

I actually dug out my old Webster's dictionary from the bottom shelf here in my office. That shows me how much out of practice I am where writing is concerned. ;__; Maybe there should be a NaNo every month? >.>

Then again, maybe not.

The internet is nice enough for looking up things, but sometimes I just want to make sure that the word I'm using actually means what I *think* it does. I've been reading too much fanfiction, I think. It's corrupted my language. ^___^

I am ever so grateful for the handy dictionary/thesaurus macs have inbuilt. :) That said, Stephen King seems to think looking up words is part of the editing process and that while you write just type what you think is right. :>

I found an online thesaurus which is absolutely wonderful! But I haven't found something equally useful for just looking up words. And it stops my flow completely if I'm not sure whether the word I'm using is the correct one...

Then again, if Stephen King doesn't look them up... >.>
