Can anyone suggest a serious book on writing? I wasn't sure whether "goo-goo" was one word or two. I loved reading Bird by Bird and Brenda Ueland's book. Before we moved, I had a copy of The Elements of Style. But none of them covered "goo-goo."

In GooGoo Cluster, it's spelled as one word, but the Oxford American Dictionary hyphenates goo-goo. For some reason, most Web Sites that feature GooGoo Clusters spell it "Goo Goo," two words.

How you intend to use “goo goo” determines how you need to spell it.
