Same, Same, But Different – Saturday Mix, 19 March 2022

Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 19 March 2022!

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 are:

  1. try
  2. dash
  3. climb
  4. pool
  5. change

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/

    hi first time to participate but I have been following your posting via Pensively 101 for about a year and usually try to write something from the prompt. here’s today’s attempt. enjoy the challenges. keep up the good work.

    Every day I attempt
    To run a bit
    To jump up and down
    My morning exercises
    Sometimes I go out
    To walk by a lake
    Just a different place
    To try my daily exercise

    here’s the poem did not seem to go through

    Every day I attempt
    To run a bit
    To jump up and down
    My morning exercises
    Sometimes I go out
    To walk by a lake
    Just a different place
    To try my daily exercise
