Word Choice

Word choice is an important aspect of voice -- and of character. "Yeah, yeah, I'll get to it tomorrow," is different than "Following up on it tomorrow pm," or "I will implement that on Sunday."

OTOH, word choice can bog a writer down, looking for that perfect word, or wanting a word that currently escapes the brain. In the first flush of creativity, if you need to use the word "report" three times in 2 paragraphs, do it. I mark these with ** and hopefully clean them up in the editing process.

May all the words you need come easily to you today.
