The Writing Life

or, Things You Might Not Suspect About Me.

I can spend a lot of time debating between ‘invective’ and ‘expletive.’

A lot of time.

Happily, doing so is my actual job right now.

(Wait for the upcoming novel to discover which I chose, or if both ended up on the cutting room floor.)

Which to use?

    I chose expletive. Invective sounds too much like William F. Buckley or Spiro T. Agnew.

    Mike, Hmmm. Hmm, hmm, hmm. Still spending that ‘a lot’ of time I spoke of. ;)
