Avoid using weak pushbutton words in story
How to determine your book’s margins

Getting concrete with literally vs. figuratively

Ever get 240_F_157229727_3DiZooY2pTSAdSVJXxm6OxsqaH7d2tkw a feeling when hearing these two words that you don’t quite know what one means?

“Literal” means you’re saying exactly what happened. “Figurative” means you’re speaking metaphorically.

So, during a headache, one’s head “figuratively explodes” not “literally explodes.”

Need an editor? Having your book, business document or academic paper proofread or edited before submitting it can prove invaluable. In an economic climate where you face heavy competition, your writing needs a second eye to give you the edge. Whether you come from a big city like Rochester, New York, or a small town like Beech Bottom, West Virginia, I can provide that second eye.
