Roget's International Thesaurus, 3rd Edition, 1962
This book is an old friend, and it has regained its place in my life. I've had this book since high school when I used it to write my English compositions, school newspaper stories (The Norse Wind), and yearbook copy (The Emersonian). After high school, it took a back seat to other books in college. Then I taught a few years, married, had children, received my Masters in Education, went back to the work force, and finally taught again until retirement. I may have used this thesaurus now and then, but nothing like I have used it this month for SOLSC.
Since blogging, this book has been by my side just like in high school when I discovered the love of writing, thanks to my sophomore English teacher, Mr. John Hancock. (Yes, that is his name.) I spent hours making sure everything I wrote was exactly what I wanted to convey. I am tickled to have the same love surface again like an old friend.
I have that time again to savor my writing, and at the same time, share it with other authors who have been bitten by the Blogging Bug!!
