The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter — it's the difference between a lightning bug and the lightning. — Mark Twain

comment Having trouble finding an old book, perhaps someone here can help?
Hi, and welcome to Writers. This question will get much better answers on scifi.stackexchange.com. They even have a story-identification tag. I will flag the mods to migrate it there.

comment Can I adapt writing in a RPG forum to writing in a book?
I don't remember which Gary Gygax series it was (Gord the Rogue, maybe?) but he allegedly wrote it based exactly on that: A series of D&D games he and his friends played.

comment Does the word erection have a neutral tone with its non-sexual definition?
@user "Install" to me means "Start with all the pieces, put it together, test to make sure it does what it's supposed to do, and clean up the site afterwards." Installing an exhibition would involve putting it into place, and if that required tools, that would seem to be understood.

I would see the double entendre. As an editor, I would change it to something else. Assemble or install, probably.

comment Should my query lead with the detective, or with the crime?
I would trip over "his eyes rolled down the front of her blouse" and the "MEANWHILE" transitions too, so I don't think this is a "it only appears when you're looking too closely" problem.
