I read that stupid article yesterday and got my panties all in a knot and had to vent.
There is no better place to go than the blogosphere!
Not only did you guys calm me down and make me laugh but you all agreed with me and that was the very best part.
So, I sent a Tweet to Angela James, the Executive Editor from Carina Press:
Wondering what @angelajames thinks of this article: 10 words editors hate? http://tinyurl.com/3vb27b2 - A dozen of us on my blog are at a loss.
She wrote back:
@hmgardner I've got nothing for you. I don't hate any of those words and they seem pretty innocuous! But I DO hate the word fateful...
Then she RT'd:
Seriously? Is it a joke? RT @hmgardner: Wondering what @angelajames thinks of this article: 10 words editors hate http://tinyurl.com/3vb27b2
And these were the responses to her:
