Action For The Week
RAMP up positive emotions by using words like sensational, awesome and amazing, and reduce negative emotions through words like peeved, miffed and mellowed. Next time your partner upsets you say that you feel ‘slightly grazed’ – the emotion is less, immediately.
(Extract from The Naked Leader)
That is a simply stunning Action to think about.
Love to think of words in their sensational form. It’s a great way to jazz up a story.
words can make things sound better than they actually are.
I prefer a story to be told as it is rather than flowered up but then there are some descriptive words that are equally good if not so sensational.
Words are what you make of them. they can mean nothing, and everything. I do like a good adjective to help a story along though. Good writing is hard to beat.
It is difficult to ramp up emotions using words. Emotions are felt from within and as such, are difficult to be manipulated.
Emotions are emotions no matter what words you use.
