Following up on last week’s #SecondThoughts, we thought it might be fun to have a go at putting the thesaurus through it’s paces.
Walk, verb: to move along on foot. According to thesaurus.com (an online version of Roget’s 21st Century Thesaurus), the following are all synonyms for walk
go on foot
hit the road
take a walk
travel on foot
wend one’s way
So the challenge is to pick at least five of these and fit them into your story in the sense in which they are intended. No Lucien Freud style lists!
Exactly 500 words – on your marks, get set go!Be it fairy tale, thriller, steampunk, romance, pick your genre and write (with the usual NSFW proviso)!
Deadline: 8 am on Sunday, 3rd May 2020.
