On Top of the World

I'm writing this from San Jose, CA in my lovely hotel room at the Fairmont Hotel. I'm at World Fantasy this weekend, and in just a little while Ill be heading downstairs for the first day of fun.

Since I have internet access, I'll be updating and talking about the convention while I'm here over at The Healing Wars blog, so head on over and take a peek.

I'll be back here gabbing about that word stuff on Tuesday.


  1. Glad to know you're having fun, Janice. I was wondering (and I hope I don't sound stupid for asking) if you could shed some light into these particular sentences: "His face contorted with pain" or "His face contorted in pain". It's been doing my head in recently. I read a couple of books and they had similar sentences but interchanged "with" with "in". Surely there must be a correct way and a wrong way ... or are both correct?

  2. Never a stupid question here, ask anything you want. For me, it's a matter of POV (and what sounds right to my ear), but let me check with my grammar gurus and get back to you. :)
