On bad writers who try to dress up their prose with big words ...
"You can put frosting on a dog turd, and it's still just a dog turd. "Most times, the first word that comes to mind is the right word. If you find yourself pulling a word from the pages of a thesaurus, it's probably not the one you're looking for. Once you start doing this, you end up like a little kid playing dress-up with mommy and daddy's too-big clothes. The results are laughable."
A room without books is like a body without a soul - Cicero
AquarianM: I'm so thankful for this quiet place full of solitude - and one of the best archives of my poems left online. Thank you, Rachelle for bringing me here back when you did.
