Re: Her/Herself

Thanks for the help. I agree, redbaron. But I wanted to double check because you never know! :)

Her/Herself

Microsoft Word says this sentence is incorrect:

Laurie wrapped the blanket tighter around herself, hoping to block the cold air.

"Herself" seems to be in question. Is it used correctly in this context? Or no?

Writing Descriptions

I'm in the process of reading "Word Painting: A Guide to Writing Descriptively" by Rebekah McClanahan. It's chock-full of anecdotes, other great writer's descriptions, encouraging tips, inspiration, and meaningful exercises at the end of each chapter. I highly recommend it if you want to improve you...
