A Love Affair with Words

by Kay~Kacey on 11/26/2007

Do you sometimes spend a lot of time finding JUST the right word when you’re writing? I mean A LOT OF TIME? :hide: I sometimes just let myself get lost in the world of synonyms and phrases. I’ve been known to wake up in the morning with just the word I was looking for the day before. My favorite source for synonyms is the Rodale book The Synonym Finder. There is just something comforting about looking through a book for the right word. I find Word’s thesaurus too limiting. I’ve been known to look through this online thesaurus when I’m in a hurry. Doesn’t give me the same love of the hunt though. :love:

So what’s your just-the-right-word-finder of choice?

The person who commented ahead of me is in SERIOUS need of a thesaurus. :rofl:

I’m a Roget’s girl, myself. Though I have two or three others, too. Another favorite reference books is Word Menu. LOVE that book!!!

I have a handy Webster’s thesaurus on my desk that I use when I’m in a jam. :typing:

Oh! I forgot about Word Menu. I love that one too! (Tori, I deleted the :crazy2:comment before you…not sure what was up with that… )
