Wednesday Words to Use and Peruse
Words are the most precious commodity a writer has to express feelings, situations, people, thought or place. Nothing is more frustrating and beautiful than words. Spoken out loud, they have a generous tenor but written they have to be concise, correct and written well. The spoken word may have its charm and the mistakes we make are lovely but not in writing.
Wrong spelling, wrong punctuation or wrong grammar sets one apart from the riffraff of the present day unscholarly writings that inundate most of the net. Keeping in mind that beautiful words are the bread and water of the writer’s trade, we have to pay special attention to proper usage and expression.
Here are the promised sentence starters and phrases of every week:
The scene was filled with…..
They sat down at a table set our with….
But, while he was talking to his host…..
It cannot be long before we must part…..
He ceased to alleviate his fears…..
Again, she endeavored to assume an air of composure……
—-the more she tried to restrain her emotions, found it less possible to do so….
—-where the gloom of the night obscured the chamber….
—-when she became tranquil, was encouraged to continue….
—-Twilight came on…..
Please use, change, play with and make them your own. With a few changes here and there, those could be used without reserve, with beauty and coherence.
