Vocabulary Building

Posted on April 20, 2013. Filed under: Blogging, Writing-Exercises | Tags: , , , , , , |

A daily writing exercise can be a way to work on vocabulary building. Merriam-Webster online has a “Word of the Day” link. Here is another similar link. And here is one more.

For April 15th, from each of those sites come three words: “heinous,” “quell,” and “fashion.” One trick is to use all three in a sentence together:

Quell the heinous fashion: be true to yourself.

Or, alternatively:

Quell the fashion of the heinous: refuse to lower your standards.

I will leave the exercise to my readers to find a way to craft these words into poetry.
