I noticed another writer-y problem last night, while I was pretending to watch football with Mr. Maryn but really goofing around online.
I found a cool word with a cool meaning and shot a fast email to myself to add it to my massive list of cool words. This morning, I discovered that word was already listed, but sheesh, does any other group of people collect words and their definitions in documents past twenty pages long?
When I was in high school I keep journal full of new words. I don't do it anymore, but I still love learning new words. Maybe I should pick that habit back up?
