Visual Thesaurus for Writers

Looking for a more inspiring interface while searching for the right word? Try the Visual Thesaurus. We’ve included an example image (click to enlarge) using this GalleyCat editor’s favorite word, “lovely.”

Here’s more about the web writing tool: “[it] allows you to discover the connections between words in a visually captivating display. Word maps let you search for just the right word and then explore related concepts, revealing the way words and meanings relate to each other. It’s a word-lover’s delight, with more than 145,000 words and 115,000 meanings organized in an innovative and intuitive design. ”

If you like the interface, you should try Visuwords. We highlighted the online graphical dictionary last year as a National Novel Writing Month tool.
