My Love of Synonyms

NanoPoblano

I love synonyms!  Give me a common word and I want to find every way there is to say it.  This is a fun way to be creative and write poetry too!

For example, in the poem below I used the word “average” and found every word I could to mean close to the same thing.

An Average Girl

She was a typical kind of girl,

just an ordinary, run of the mill kind of girl.

Nothing fancy, nothing elegant, simply her.

She had a common job as a cocktail waitress

earning her living at the usual kind of bar –

serving men who treated her cruel.

In her regular way she battled the demons of her past.

They drove her on in her average same old existence,

and it became ordinary to her.

She had been a typical kind of girl,

just an ordinary, run of the mill kind of girl.

Now she was lost, mediocre, barely adequate –

a below average kind of girl.

In mediocrity she dwells,

all alone in the bowels of life.

I am always looking for ways to make my writing easier.  Pinterest has some of the best images out there.  I found this just the other day:

100-ways-to-say-Good

Be on the lookout for ways to make your writing more interesting or appealing.  Just make sure that the words you choose have the same basic meaning or emotional association so that you do not confuse your reader.

Have fun and experiment!

Thanks for stopping by to see what I am up to today!  I look forward to seeing you again!
