If you need this post, you shouldn’t be writing
Writing should come from the heart and if you need assistance like the one from the table below you really should think of changing your hobby.
This is how a friend of mine told me when he first saw the table below:
|Intellectual words||Emotional words|
|I regret||I’m sorry|
It’s a pure message:
Shifting word choice in the favor of emotion is a good practice. Especially when creating character dialog for example.
In the same time, you should stick to the words on the left you you need to write technical papers.
Let’s compare more pairs:
sufficient vs enough
pleased vs happy
observed vs seen
obstinate vs stubborn
jesting vs kidding
What to do now?
Can you provide more examples? Put them in the comments below.
