How to Increase Writing Vocabulary

    1. Write more

    2. Don't be afraid of editing

    look for adverbs in writing..they are a sign of weak verbs. create a list of stronger verb options

    3. Condense your writing

    Find a long sentence. Condense it down to as few as words as possible

    4. Read more

    Read fiction especially

    5. Write headlines

    headlines force creativity. come up with 10-50 headlines for each practice section

    6. Download a vocabulary game app

    replace all your candy crush and stupid games with word based games. even standardized test vocab trainers will help

    7. Play vocab games while driving

    see a sign. pick a word, and come up with as many synonyms as possible

    8. Use a thesaurus

    don't be afraid to use tools as a writer. they aren't a crutch. the more you use, the more embedded the new vocab will become

    9. Write poetry

    not free verse. use a strict traditional form to force you to find words that express your idea inside a meter

    10. Play dress-up

    be an actor and take on the role of a stereotype or historical character. speak and/or write like they would. Pick someone vastly different than yourself
