Explore the Onomatopoeia Dictionary: NaNoWriMo Tip #28

As you near the end of your National Novel Writing Month manuscript, you should check the online Onomatopoeia Dictionary to spice up your climactic car chase, sword fight or dramatic confrontation.

The amazing resource words for sounds has sections on eating & drinking, explosions, music, animals and much, much more. If you need a refresher, watch the Winnie-the-Pooh video embedded above for a definition of onomatopoeia.

Here’s more from the site: “Onomatopoeia (words that imitate sound) is prominent in comics. There is a dictionary of onomatopoeia in comics, entitled: “Ka-boom”, by Kevin J. Taylor, and a website. Much of the onomatopoeia in comics is not used outside the world of comics. Also, some words are used by only one author. Although this website does feature a few words from comics, it gravitates towards words found in other literature.”

This is our twenty-eighth NaNoWriMo Tip of the Day. As writers around the country join the writing marathon this month, we will share one piece of advice or writing tool to help you cope with this daunting project.
