Using Descriptive Words: Fast

As writers we need to improve our Vocabulary. We cannot inundate our readers with the same words repeatedly. Words Like, fast, very, hot, sad…these are common words we all use to describe and action or how we feel.   

                Instead of using the word Fast, here are a few Synonyms that will give your writing a little extra boost.

 In a Jiffy,
 Lickety Split,
 Like a bat out of hell,
On the double,

Instead of writing ‘he ran out the house fast’ write, “He ran out the house like a bat out of hell.” With the new version it gives the reader a better understanding of how important it was for your character to leave.

Changing a word can give the readers a new understanding.
