A work in progress book that is always there as a go-to reference - I'll be hanging onto it for quite awhile as I develop my writing to a point that I wont be constantly looking up a fix that smooths out an issue I'm having a problem with. Words matter and short story's squeeze it to minimum. It' like a wordsmith on a diet. Great reference and guide. Gery
