Great Galloping Verbs!

by klparry

Hello Friends!

I have been lost in my own world working on my epic novel, The Pirate’s Daughter And A King’s Ransom. Through this I came across a nice little resource I want to share with you. It is a list of strong verbs.

As writers, we know that the right word placed in the right place can really add impact to a scene. Do it well and your got something memorable that will stay with your readers even after the book is closed.
