Thesaurusing

Friday 23rd October 2009

Was going to write this blog earlier but didn't know how to spell Thesaurus and nor did my spell checker when I asked it!

I love thesaurusing - still doesn't look as if it is spelt right - chasing a word; I know there is a word I want but what is it? So I look up one word that is similar and that gives me a list of other words and from those I choose another word and chase that one and then look at the new list and chase that one and eventually I find the perfect word. I used to think it was cheating - maybe that's why I liked it so much - but now I realise it is a great way to enrich my writing.
