Southern writers have to deal with problems other writers don't, mostly because of Southern terms, expressions, dialect and rhythm. They also drive copy editors crazy. (I talked a bit about that here.)
We love those words like danggit, dern, and hissy fit.
So I got a chuckle out of this quote from an article about writing by Steve Martin:
"Dagnabbit will never get you anywhere with the Booker Prize people. Lose it."
Guess I'll never win that dern Booker Prize. Danggit!
