one new word

I get it, your writing is getting a bit dull. you’re aiming to walk that fine line between succinct & punchy and descriptive & interesting, carefully trying not to lean much to either side.

here’s a recipe to keep yourself in check while also stretching your boundaries: use one new word.

but that’s it. just one.

find a strange one you’ve never used before. don’t be trepidatious about it. peregrinate into new literary territory. your readers and you might find it felicific.

but again, don’t overdo it. a new word should add spice, nuance, and clarity - not befuddlement.
