about

Just what every writer needs -- a guide to word usage with attitude. (Some will say humor, too, but nearly everyone agrees on "attitude.")

WORD WATCH is a compilation of columns written over several years for newsletters for writers' groups.

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.
