TALK? How about CHATTER, JABBER, WHISPER, BLAB?
We all know this stuff, but it's so easy to forget and use weaker words that don't have punch. Over the years, I've collected a rag-tag list of words and phrases I like. It started as strong verbs and moved on to just anything that I like, and sometimes I added a word that I wanted to use for a specific story. These aren't in alphabetical order. That would be too organized. For now, it's just a big list of strong words. I will post some of them next week. Do you have a list of favorite words?
