Writer’s Toolbox: Excuse Me…How Do You Spell That? by Pepper Phillips

I’m in the midst of going through my manuscript before I ship it out for edits, so I’m checking every word.

Just how do you spell some words, especially words that represent sounds?

Is it ‘woosh’ or ‘whoosh’ when the gasoline lights on fire?

Well, I found a handy, dandy website: The Onomatopoeia Dictionary.  Better known as the “Written Sound” that answers that question.

Check it out if you’re writing a sound…and the answer above is ‘whoosh’.

This is a great tool for your writer’s toolbox.
