Have you ever, while writing, found yourself using the same word over and over? It's distracting to the reader to find such repetition when they are into the story.


You know you need another word, but you can't seem to find one that fits. Let's face it....some of the words we are looking for cannot

Scenario : Elevator she is sitting on the rail legs spread and he turns and sees this and he _________________ He walks over to her and is in between her legs but I want a good action word for this. Saunter is too slow plus a longer walk, rushes over is too fast, slide isn't right....

Stroll? No... I do like when he saunters towards with a sly little grin, and a twinkle in his eye..

ok saunters it is. Just seems like there should be more room in the elevator...saunters is more like she is standing at the window naked and he sees her waiting there for him and he saunters over and wraps her in his arms and gently kisses her wet lips.

What about "he is instantly drawn to her like an iron shaving to a magnet"?

I would have responded to you sooner but I locked up and it was locked up good this time ugh


Anyway what I was saying was I really like the "nestled between her legs" I may use that later in the story...I am going with the magnet this time.


I want to thank you both for your help because until you find the right combination of words your story is stuck!
