While I was looking through my ProWritingAid newsletter, I found something they shared via 20 Misused Words That Make Smart People Look Dumb and had a blast reading it.

As some of you know, I offer freelance editing services as well as being a writer. The only thing is the use of irony has far more than just one definition, but arguing over irony itself can be quite ironic.

The only time you can really break these rules is in dialog when you want your character to sound realistic and prone to making silly mistakes. It also helps if you want a character to correct the other person and show off what a smart-ass they are.

How about following me around on Twitter or Facebook? I’m pretty entertaining when I’m not busy hiding from the Great Old Ones. Oh and by the way, if you’re looking to edit your book, contact me on Facebook or via Twitter. I charge reasonable rates and give your manuscript the attention it deserves to get ready for publishing.
