(What do Mormons Believe:

We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God.
Articles of Faith
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints)


How many of my faithful readers (all two or three of you) remember the list of words I made a few weeks ago? You know, the list that we need to search for and eliminate from our prose, where applicable? Scroll down a few pages and you'll find them. I made two lists.

Well, I did it, and I have to testify that that exercise has improved my prose immensely. I've been able to tighten up some very awkward wordings simply by eliminating many of those words.

Now, the next big challenge is to proof read "Sweet Revenge" from a hard copy. I started doing that but felt the need to do the search and replace thing first. I think the book is finally ready to go to market. I figure by the time I find an agent, I'll be done with the proof-reading thing.

Wish me luck.
