Great news! I’m guest posting on The Eternal Scribbler: Tips, tricks, and tutorials for writers with this nifty article about writing:

Find that Perfect Word: Contemplating Word Choice
A Checklist
by Julie Valerie

Some highlights:

Writing with clarity and careful attention to word choice is important because words convey meaning. Words have power.

To find the perfect word, consider the following:

  • Denotation
  • Connotation
  • Sensory writing
  • Quality of words
  • Formal, informal, archaic
  • General vs. specific
  • Abstract vs. concrete
  • Words that create word pictures
  • Focus
  • Static vs. moving images
  • Figurative language

. . . Curious? Want to learn more?
