||A rose by any other name would be completely different. And a bird in the hand would create totally
dissimilar sensations to one twittering away in the bush. Or warbling in the foliage. Or chittering in
the climbing hydrangea.
Whether crafting a 125,000-word novel or a 1,250-word short story, good writers learn that every
word has a unique image and impact. In this seminar, RITA® award-winning Linnea Sinclair helps
writers put more sensation, imagery and punch in their prose though proper word choice. Sinclair—a
self-professed word slut—utilizes word games and attendee exercises to demonstrate how much fun
writing with the right word can be—and how the right words can turn a good story into a great one.
