A tool to use for find Synonyms: Synonym Finder.

This is a great, unique little tool I found by browsing for writing resources. It’s name speaks for itself: it’s a synonym finder.

The site is clean cut, has soothing colors, and to-the point results for any word you look up.

For example, when I look up the word “romance,” I get this:

Synonyms: romance, romanticism
Definition: an exciting and mysterious quality (as of a heroic time or adventure)

Hypernyms: quality
Definition: an essential and distinguishing attribute of something or someone
Usage: the quality of mercy is not strained—Shakespeare”

I had no idea what a “hypernym” is. Apparently it’s a word with a more general meaning that a more specific word fall under. Like, color is a hypernym for green.

On the right corner there’s a button to make graphs! So you can trace each synonym from it’s root word, and see how far the other synonyms connect in comparison to others.

I really like it, so I’m going to definitely bookmark it on my writing tools list.

Because I know I use certain color and feeling descriptors far too often. This should be useful!

Writing Traumatic Injuries References

alatar-and-pallando:

So, pretty frequently writers screw up when they write about injuries. People are clonked over the head, pass out for hours, and wake up with just a headache… Eragon breaks his wrist and it’s just fine within days… Wounds heal with nary a scar, ever…

I’m aiming to fix…

Oh yesss. With as much crap that happens to my characters, this is THE essential writing guide for me. XD

Another set of teas is up on Adagio!

LOVE AS THOU WILT: TEAS OF THE NIGHT COURT
Based on the Kushiel’s Legacy book series by Jacqueline Carey

There are fourteen teas in total, one for each of the Thirteen Houses of The Court of Night-Blooming Flowers, as well as a fan-only Anguisette blend. (It’s hard to see the red fleck in the eye on the label online, but I promise you it’s there! :P)

Join the fandom here or view the teas here.

The tea fiend in me approves! Something about these tea descriptions is so sensual, romantic, and delicious all at once. Perfect for Kushiel themed teas!

Tea porn? Totally tea porn! These descriptions are sinfully delicious sounding!

After seeing your post and a few others I decided to do a somewhat historical disney princess warrior as well. I decided to set it in the late  German Renaissance, mainly for the sake of being able to draw full plate armor and a longsword. The sleeves and fancy armor are not strictly practical but I wanted to evoke a sense of regality seeing that she is a princess :)

She looks so strong and beautiful, I love it! I adore Snow White; and I’d love to see a movie where she would wear an armor like this. 

SHOUTS


Remind me to try my hand at Jasmine and Belle in this mode sometime!

So exciting! The Mask Lovers Facebook Group has started a week-long feature of my work! Every day this week they’ll be sharing one of my masks and asking a question which I get to answer in detail.
I hope you’ll keep up and maybe learn a thing or two there!  You can read the first day of the feature here.

Pimpin’ my mask work because there’s a pretty cool week long interactive interview feature going on at a Facebook group I’m in and I figured you guys might enjoy it too!
