Avoiding Word Overuse

Please scroll down to view more, because this color chart happens to be unfortunately large…

These were posted to help writers write.... but TGtbT.com thinks they'd help consignment/ resale staffers describe incoming goods better. After all, it's not a pink couch or dress: it's salmon or strawberry, right?: 100 ways to say bad - blog post includes links to dictionary definitions for all of these words!: 200 Ways to Say Went ...or in other words, use the correct past tense verb :-): A List of More Descriptive Words for "Said"...I still like the word said, because it's accurate.:

So, just a reminder, you can find more of these on Pinterest (maybe Google Images).  Of course there’s always thesaurus.com, which is the obvious solution, but I think that that these charts offer the larger variety of word choices you’re looking for.  These are great resources to look back on when writing.

Speaking of which, to make sure that you’re not overusing certain words, you can always just press Ctrl+F.  Just type in a word in the search bar in the right hand corner that pops up.  The words on the page that match the word you typed into the search bar will be highlighted.
