The difference between the almost right word and the right word is the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.

- Mark Twain

Mark Twain said that the difference between the right word and the almost-right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.

Don’t waste your time on the almost right words. If you know what you want to say, but aren’t sure how to say it, I can help. I've  been a writing coach for individuals, firms and non-profit enterprises for years. I've given workshops on commentary and have coached people with a variety of backgrounds and skill levels, from writing the first paragraphs of an oped commentary to final product. My editing skills can improve anyone’s writing, not just in choice of words, but in timing, angle and the choice of publication.
