Gather round, boys and girls, and hear a horrible tale of an overused word.


Stephen King took to Twitter to let would-be writers know they are overusing a certain word and it is making him very unhappy. We don't want this writer to be unhappy. Bad things happen when Stephen King gets unhappy.

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?
