I plan on being on an author and when I want to make sure I'm using a cliche right or wording it correctly, all I have to do is check the Dictionary of Cliches. I always keep it close by my writing station and it hardly ever goes unread when I sit down to write.

This witty book gives the definition of every catchy term "From A to Z" (P.97) It's great to have and you'll never know when you will actually ned it!!
