A lot of new and experienced writers lean very heavily on the word “and,” so many in fact that “and” has became one of the top overused words.
Thirteen conjunction words to use instead of “And.”
3. in addition
7. in addition to
8. as well as
12. more than that
13. together with
I quite like “and” 🙂
And can be very useful but easy to overuse.
One can never over use “and”! *grin*
Actually you can and I got in trouble on my very first edit with my editor for that very same thing. But I have to agree with her, too many “ands” and your story end up looking like child is writing to Santa Clause: and I want a dolly and a bike and a teddy bear.
Good stuff for a writer to have at her fingertips.
Thank you. 🙂
Thank you for this post! I have some of these words, but not 13 of them!! Awesome!
I so love those Shcoolhouse Rock commercials! LOL!
My TT is at http://paigetylertheauthor.blogspot.com/
Me too. I think they taught so much and I think they should put them back on.
It’s been so long since I’ve seen a Schoolhouse Rock commercial, but loved them as a kid. 🙂 I like “and”.
,,,and your point is?
lol great list.
LOL. Thank you. 🙂
A good post, though numbers 3 and 7 are repetitive. “Or” and “but” are other good linking words.
Oh, so they are. Sorry about that, but I did have to come up with thirteen.
As for “or” and “but” they not a good substitute for “and” because their use is to offer an alternative not an addition to.
To quote the Scare Crow, “You can go this way, or you can go this way.”
Very helpful. I use and a lot, though I’ve been trying to use then as well.
Great T13 list…
Oh, I so loved schoolhouse rock! Happy TT!
