Ever taken a dive in the deep sea of the dictionary or wandered the forest of the thesaurus? [tweetthis url=”http://ctt.ec/syZ8q”]
It’s fun when words just flow out in some alliterative way. Playing with language is something writers have a chance to do every day. Words are our tools and our toys. Shades of meaning, connotation and implication — all these things can be harnessed to create the reader’s experience. Take time out to learn new words. Look up exact meanings. Find the right word for the job.
Take a dive in the deep sea of the dictionary.
Wander for hours in the forest of the thesaurus.
Write a little poetry.
It’s a wonderful writing life.
