Sound Smart: Different Ways to Say Common Things


We’re writers, thus we know: Sometimes it’s hard to think of new and interesting way to say things. As you write, it’s often hard to be inventive, especially if you’ve been writing for a very long time. How do you dramatically say, “I asked him an urgent question”? How can you imply romance when you write about giving someone a present?


We’re here to help! We’ve scoured our brains and the internet to think of different words to use in place of common words. This will help you spruce up not only your writing but your conversational skills as well. Everyone will talk about how intelligent you sound behind your back…

Bad, Tired, Pretty and Happy


Ask, Amazing, Very and Think


Give, Great, Nice and Went
