And my next quiz question what What is Mr. King's favorite obscure adjective?
Gar.. did he specifically talk about this in On Writing? I feel like he might have... and can't remember the word he particularly used.

Also... @Christine62 do you mind if we go back and put your question in bold and maybe even larger type so people see it as a new question?

adjective: green? as in, see anything green? used about 156 times in Wizard and Glass. dunno, really...nothing that springs from memory, maybe worthless? or another thought was honky, honky muffah? that's one nice thing about reading on the kindle...and I think I've only a few shorts on the kindle...but one can do a word search, see how many times a word comes up. But I imagine if one is listening to the story, one tends to hear words or phrases more so, or does that happen because of the reader? emphasis on a word maybe?
