First Published on Oct 09 2011
WORD WATCH is a compilation of columns written over several years for Update, the newsletter of the Washington (D.C.) Romance Writers, and Novel Ideas, the newsletter of the Virginia Romance Writers.
It stemmed from a conversation with a fellow author, who suggested – none too gently – that Word Watch quit griping about words being misused by writers and do something about it.
So, here it is: An attempt to share a lifetime of word usage scrutiny and a journalistic career of picky editing.
