Hello, fellow writers!
Ever had that feeling when there was a word on the tip of your tongue, but you couldn't quite grasp it? Or a word that wasn't on the tip of your tongue at all, but that you felt in your bones should be a word?
How about when you need to describe something, but can't quite think of the right phrase that doesn't have unwanted connotations? Wanted a good idiom with a certain meaning, but you can't for the life of you bring one to mind? Or writing a poem, but can't think of a good rhyme for a certain word?
Or that moment when you realize you've used the same word half a dozen times in a row in the past paragraph and you need to change the wording, but need something different that's still a synonym? (e.g. Let's say you're writing a discussion called The Perfect Word and you've used the word "word" eight times already, four sentences in. xD)
Or even not had any specific problem, but just wanted to swap vocabulary with someone a little more responsive than thesaurus?
I know I've been in all of these situations and numerous occasions, and I'm probably not the only one—so here's the place to discuss context, deliberate over figures of speech, exchange vocabulary, wrangle with the nuances of the English language, etc. (Or I suppose you could try another language if you'd like—although keep in mind that all non-English posts on NMG do need to be translated into English. xD)
