My brain hurts... Wordsmithing can do that to you! I have been working on an ad (for my portrait art) to be published in The American Airedale. I have lingered on tweaking a few individual words in my copy for a couple of hours now. The design is done, with the images placed to my satisfaction, so now I have been substituting words repeatedly and weighing each of their meanings. It's rather like a little poem, so it is a delicate operation. All this effort for three lines of copy. I'd probably stroke out if I ever tried to to write a novel!
