A to Z Blogger Challenge: Letter T

THESAURUS

I love the THESAURUS! When in need of a cool synonym to spice up a word, head to the THESAURUS! It is my go to when I'm having a brain fart.

HERE is the link to my favorite one.

What about you? Do you use the THESAURUS?

I remember using the Thesaurus once and when I went back during editing, I was like, wait... what does that word mean again? Hahah!

I use one...just about every day. It's pretty much one of the best tools ever invented.

The first time I saw a copy of Roget's Thesaurus I was maybe nine years old and I thought it would be the story of someone called Roget and his dinosaur.

I was so disappointed.

I used the thesaurus to write the story that became the genesis of my chronological first Atlantic City book. I liked the story so much I decided to turn it into a prequel series (and so many years later I've decided to junk my first AC series and just use the best material for my other books with these characters). We were supposed to write a story in the style of a story we'd recently read, and I chose John Stenbeck's The Affair at 7 Rue de M_________. It used very fancy words, so I decided I'd use fancy words too. Unfortunately, at only 12 years old, I didn't understand that I was hilariously misusing some of these words! Though one of the words I found during that assignment remains my favorite alternate expression for blonde, xanthochroid.

I can't write without my thesaurus. Does that make me geeky?

I have several. I keep one on my night table.

I love the Thesaurus. It's my synonym finder, word changer, vernacular enhancer.

Donna K. Weaver said...

Yes. That's the one I use, too. Once I became a writer it became one of my favorite websites. =D

I use one all the time, too! When I'm writing and want to play with different word choices, I pop that sucker open.

My Thesaurus is an easy click on my desktop. Use it all the time. One of my best tools. ^_^

My thesaurus and I started out as "just friends," but we've decided to take our relationship to the next level.

That's the site I used at first and of course I own one, but now I mainly use The Bookshelf Muse website:):)
