Words have a strong impact on a story. Word choice is something that authors carefully consider when writing because boring words do not paint as vivid of a picture as more exciting vocabulary does! Use the Quizlet below to test yourself on some more exciting word choices than their boring counterparts. As you do this, think about the impact each word would have on a story. Which word would you rather read? Which paints a better picture in the reader's head? As you're reading over the next few days, write 5 words on a sticky note that stood out to you as you read...words that helped to paint a VIVID picture in your mind. Share these with me at our next conference.
