a friendly writing tip

July 17, 2011

Try using a thesaurus when checking definitions of words you’ve used in an article.

Find the word you are checking, substitute it with a synonym and then read it aloud.

Does it make sense? Is the thought as strong as you meant it?

A thesaurus is also a great way to keep from repeating yourself over and over again in your writing.
