Finding the Right Words

Over the past few years, I have written a lot of words - I've written the SFD (borrowed from Anne Lamont) about our 6-month trip across the country, our accident in California, my 'almost death' and my recovery from severe injuries. Now I am in the middle of rewriting and I need 'lightning' words to make my boring writing come alive.
The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug. ~Mark Twain

Isn't that the truth... Only sometime you are hoping for lightning bug words and they come out lightning and ruin everything around it! shelly
