Same, Same, But Different – Saturday Mix, 11 June 2022

Welcome to the Saturday Mix, 11 June 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. run
  2. yell
  3. blue
  4. wrap
  5. smoke

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/

    I tend not to participate in this, as it can be hard for me to fit all 5 synonyms in one poem, but I pulled it off this time. ūüôā Fun.
