Saturday Mix – Same Same But Different, 16 June 2018

Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 16 June 2018!

This week we are diving into the depths of our thesaurus and exploring the world of synonyms.

Same Same But Different
Your ‘Same Same But Different’ task is to take the five challenge words and NOT use them in your writing. That’s right, you need to dig out your thesaurus and find a synonym for each word instead.

Your words this week are:

  1. shoe
  2. sweep
  3. wash
  4. sky
  5. duck

Your writing form is either poetry or prose.

Synonym Searching
Synonyms are words that are similar, or have a related meaning, to another word. They can be lifesavers when you want to avoid repeating the same word or if your word might not be the most appropriate. You can search for synonyms online at: http://www.thesaurus.com/

You may be asking yourself, What are some examples of synonyms?
Luckily, the nice folks at YourDictionary have some for you…

    The rain was cleansing when the mallard dropped on us right out of the blue. Swept it off the path using my sneaker to continue on my way.

    While shopping for footwear, a strong wind whooshed by me and cleansed my mind of mental debris. I looked up to the stratosphere in relief, then I hit my head against a street sign because I forgot to lower myself.
    (I replaced duck with two words, hope that’s all right.)

      This reminds me of the old notion that wind was necessary for cleansing one of mental illness, and this way our old ‘hospitals for lunatics’ here in Australia were built on top of hills!

      A great little tale! Let’s hope there’s no bump from the impact 😊 thanks for joining in the Saturday Mix

      (Btw, all good to use two words as the synonym)

        If mental institutions here in California were built on tops of hills and mountains they’d have some awesome views. Glad to be a part of the Saturday Mix. See you next time! 🙂
