Reach for this Resource When You Are Searching for the Right Word

While I work with words every day in my career in publishing, at times I struggle to find the right words for the right time and place. Liz Duckworth has served every reader with this slim volume: A PERFECT WORD FOR EVERY OCCASION.

As she writes in the introduction about our computerized world saying, "Because I think somehow the act of pushing a button to instantly find anything has robbed us of the ability to access our own heart to find the right word at the right time….Okay, it's not just technology's fault. It's our culture, our fast-paced lives, our lack of practice crafting what we write." Page 10-11)

Duckworth covers ten important areas and in each case gives the reader Guidelines for Finding the Right Words, Prompts to Help You Begin, Words to Make Your Own, What Others Say: Quotes Worth Sharing and Scripture Passages to Read or Quote. Also each chapter includes a fictional character called Aunt Me-me with specific insights about what NOT to say.

Keep this book handy because you will want to reach for the insight and wisdom contained in A PERFECT WORD FOR EVERY OCCASION. I loved it.
