I have been writing reviews on the web for quite some time now.  One of the tools I depend is dictionary.com.  I have a pretty good vocabulary but sometimes I am not quite sure if the word I want to use is appropriate.  I constantly turn to dictionary.com to make sure that it is.  I also frequently utilize Thesaurus.com which just one click away off the dictionary.com site.  No doubt about it--I have been become a much better writer by frequently making use of these marvelous tools.   As far as I am concerned there are two kinds of websites:  "cool" and "useful".  For me, dictionary.com sits right at the top of the "useful" category.     Highly recommended to all!

Another tool that should always be at one's side is Strunk & White's book, The Elements of Style. It's been around for over 100 years and continues to work as the "bible" for print journalists and all other writers as well.

Maybe I'm just a Google fan boy.  Well, yes... I am a Google fanboy.    Dictionary.com is great.. don't get me wrong.  But there's that little researcher in me that always says, "look at multiple sources".      And that's where Google comes in, along with Firefox.  Using Firefox's Keyword function, I've set my "awesome bar" to allow for definitions.    Here's how:    Save Google.com in your favorites, call …

I guess I would qualify as a frustrated writer. My work requires very little writing and so since 1999 I have been writing reviews on non-fiction books and anthology CD's on amazon.com. I never could … more
