Synonym Nightmare Every New Author Needs To Know

sshot20100728232922Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night freaked out over a word I’ve chosen in my writings, doubting myself. Then I grab pen and paper I keep at my bedside, making a note to research that very word, considering changing it to better mean what I am trying to say.

I am not condemning any opinion, nor judging anyone but when I came across this article detailing the 50 Worst Synonyms used incorrectly in 50 Shades, I gasped for air, getting another glimpse of how harsh in judgement the industry can be, and how much harder I have to work to make sure my work is polished enough.
