    When you are at a loss for words, where do you go to find *THE* word?

    Meaning the actual words, not writer's block. Do you use an online tool, dictionary, thesaurus, book you have read, etc? Feel free to leave links.

    Typically the thesaurus feature in Word document or my own brain. I will typically try and speak the sentence or paragraph out loud to find what word would best fit.

    I usually put [..] and go back to it later, or change the sentence to fit a new word.

    I'll usually try Webster's online and check out synonyms for a word similar to what I want.  Awesome picture by the way!
