We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

It's been a problem of mine for some time that I use a very limited vocabulary in my writing. I have an understanding and can read a ton more words than I use in my speech or writing.

Any suggestions, tips, tricks, on how to add words into my vernacular?

I second freerice.com. So fun. Also:

Beyond that, I also like a more straightforward style that isn't tripping over itself with $100,000 words. I don't think building one's vocab = adding bigger words. I agree with Sandy. Pay attention to the great way others turn phrases and let that inspire you. If you read a word that you know and like, but haven't used it in a while, write it down as a reminder and throw it in here and there. Rediscover/revisit what you already know while looking for new words and phrases. :)
you can't read/understand a ton more once. but you can add words a few by few.

I was almost unable to read/write english last year, and I learn a new language and more words as I read more and more zines (and books).
