Writer Friends Challenge: Day 23 – Finding the Right Word

It’s Day 23 of the Writer Friends Challenge!

Day 23 – What to do when you can’t think of the right word: What do you mean? Us writers always have all the correct words at our fingertips! We never forget how to say what we’re trying to say!

I wish! It happens all the time! Sometimes I’ll just rearrange my sentence, but it’s also incredibly handy to have the internet nearby! I’ve also seen quite a few people reach out for help in the writers’ groups I’m in.

What about you? Don’t forget to check out my giveaway happening this month!

  1. The thesaurus is often my best friend during the writing process! If I can’t find the right word, I use that until I do! Or sometimes I might overuse a phrase, and it helps me from becoming redundant!
