Cassadine musings . . .

everytime i write them, Stefan in particular, dictionary.com becomes my best friend.

granted spelling is not a particular strong suite of mine, but i never realized how enormously huge the gap existed between words i commonly use & can actually spell (for the most part at least) as opposed to the rest of my vocabulary actually was.

it's mildly disturbing.

for example, it took me something like 5 freaking minutes to get close enough to impertinence for the online dictionary to even be able to guess WTF word, i actually wanted. normally, i'd just use the sneaky backdoor thesaurus method, but i couldn't find a precise enough synonym (totally cut & paste, btw, because that is a word i will probably never be able to spell) to find it.

it's annoying. but, in retrospect, not nearly as bad as the time i needed to spell "epiphany" for a paper once. i literally spent 45 minutes on that one, but that was years before dictionary.com existed. as i recall, i eventually broke down & called someone.

anyway . . . Stefan is a fun bastard to write, just really bloody difficult.
