And buy a really big dictionary, preferably one that has integrated synonyms. No one will go from dictionary to looking up alternative words in a thesaurus and still manage to keep on writing!
Do sometimes just sit and read a page or two of the dictionary to extend your own vocabulary and enrich your writing further.(less)

Pat Jourdan answered a question about One Hundred Views of NW3:
One Hundred Views of NW3 by Pat  Jourdan
It is one young woman's viewpoint of life at the time. No mobile phones, in fact few telephones in houses and very few cars. Jobs and rooms were easy to get, especially the lower-paid employment and the basic bedsits.

Pat Jourdan and 2 other people liked Lukeetc's review of The Calligrapher:
The Calligrapher by Edward Docx
"In general I hate the word pretentious--it usually just functions as shorthand for "something I didn't understand". It's an easy cop-out, a way of not-really-getting a book while managing to blame it on the author.

"I so wanted to red this book, but it is a telling story, not a showing one.
