Collect favorite words. Write them down.
Writers get to have favorite words. It’s one of the perks of being a writer.
Favorite words can happen because you like the meaning — hug, light, watermelon, fun. Favorite words can happen because you like the sound — sizzle, pumpkin, baloney.
The ultimate favorite words are the ones where you claim both meaning and sound as a favorite. These words are special to collect.
If you don’t have a favorite words list, now is the time to begin one…or many. Keep them in notebooks, phones, sticky notes, and the back of napkins. Don’t be surprised when your favorite words start popping up in your writing. When we deem something special, it often gives back in magical ways.
Open your blog and write a post. It can be about anything — just write!
