Powerful Words

Authors express even the ordinary with extraordinary words. Some words are charged with energy. They conjure images, stir the senses, enrage, or engage.

I will give you a few examples of what I mean:

  • Alone
  • Vibrant
  • Skitter

Now, make a list of as many powerful words as you can. You’ll want to keep the list. As time passes, you may add to the list. Then, when you are working on a project one day, and you are searching for a powerful word, consult your list. This list can be a fabulous resource for authors.

Please let me hear from you on this. One of the reasons for this blog is to help my fellow writers to improve their craft.
