My lovely Dictionary and Thesaurus – you are the writer’s loyal friends. You always know exactly what to say and are eager to help me discover that picture-perfect adjective, the ideal verb or that perfect noun. When I am lost on my journey, you help me find the right path. Your colorful language invigorates my poetry and adds flavour to my stories.
You wear your dog-eared pages with pride while you linger amidst story drafts and notebooks. Other reference books are jealous at the attention you receive; your covers may not be intact, but you are always ready to lend a hand to the poor suffering writer who can’t find the right word.
I appreciate the job you do; I am happy to have you in my life.
