One of the reasons I enjoy King's novels is his use of creative phrases. He puts words together that I've never seen or heard in the same sentence. However, I'm trying to decide what to think about words he seemingly just made up. Take, for example, "clustermug". When I googled it, the only reference to it was in this book. He uses it several times in UTD and from the context it clearly means "disaster" or "catastrophe" but why did he choose to make up a word when he could have chosen a perfectly good word we already have? Was he trying to imply that it was an indescribable disaster, one in which we'd say that "words fail me" when we try to express what it was like? Any thoughts?
