The dictionary is a writer’s Bible. It is to a writer what the hoe is to the farmer, well for those farmers who still use hoes. Just like the farmers, hoes can be found in modern forms now, the dictionary does not necessarily have to be a huge dusty book opened once in a while, it can be carried around, on a computer, on a phone. The dictionary can end many literary debates. It can strengthen a writer’s vocabulary. It can enrich his or her flexibility with words. (Whatever that means! Go figure in your dictionary)
If you don’t have one now, get one!
