Today I am going to tell you about beautiful words; these words can instantly improve your writing when used, increase its persuasive capability, artistic value, and make almost any piece of writing vivid and distinctive. However, thousands of beginning writers prefer, unfortunately, to use their bleached out, weaker synonyms.
