Day Eleven, continued!

“The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.”

Mark Twain is right.

Remember, every word counts.

Each word carries weight. The wrong word is heavier and makes the sentence feel unwieldy. But the right word. Ah, the right word touches the heart of the reader.

Of course, we aren’t searching for that perfect word now. Right (Write= Mr. Hemingway)? We are just putting the words down.

Then we slash, carve, skin, fillet and perfect the piece.

For now–keep working. Just a few days left!
