Go! Such a small word that can be packed with so much meaning.  Interesting to think about how so much meaning can be packed into two little letters of the alphabet.   “Go!” Alicia screams throwing the champagne glass across the room. She had found the letters from Zack’s mistress. “Go! Go! Go!” Mom cheers from […]

So Like Very

So Like Very

So is one of those filler words. Similar to like and very.  These are words that are overused, really mean nothing,  and don’t add anything to a sentence. If you are writing and you see “so”, “like”, or “very”, take a minute and rethink their use. Do you really need them in that sentence? Are

Banshee Scream

Banshee Scream #SoCS

Ever heard a panther scream? Sounds like a woman screaming. Maybe that’s where the story of banshees comes from. Maybe it’s the wind howling through the cracks in the frame that make that howling noise. The wolf panting at the door. Let me in or I’ll huff and puff and blow your house down. Down or
