I don’t know about you, but the site that I use most frequently is Google. I have it set as my home page now, since I bring it up so much.
There are some time-saving tips for use with Google, in case you’re like me (always searching for something in a hurry.) Check out the Google Guide. Here are some of the more-useful search tips (excerpted right from the guide):
salsa –dance the word salsa but NOT the word dance (that’s a minus sign before the ‘dance.’)
castle ~glossary glossaries about castles, as well as dictionaries, lists of terms, terminology
define:imbroglio definitions of the word imbroglio (or whatever word you’re looking up) from the Web
It can be really frustrating to Google something specific and have thousands of unrelated hits come up. These are tools to narrow down what we’re looking for and get our information quicker—and get back to writing.
