Keeping this… forever…
Excuse me as I copy this down. :o
keeping for reference
I’ve had one of these since high school. My English teacher was adamant about never using said unless we had to.
omg…this is so…amazing…
Why? English teachers are full of shit. I could know every word in the world and then just start going POTZ N PANZ N DISCOMBOBULATE N CAGAMOSIS N LIRIPIP FAECAL MATTTER N EGGY FARTZ ON A SUNDAY MORNIN, that doesn’t mean anything.
Anybody who wants to be a writer, develop your actual technique (simile/metaphor/assonance/consonance/development etc), and be concise with your wording. That is all. I failed English, and guess what I do for one of my jobs now?
