vivify: to endue with life; to enliven.

Recently I read a blog that awed me with the writer's ability to vivify her writing.

Then I read this word from dictionary.com - yesterday's word, so perfect for today.

It seems that I write around my stories instead of through them some days.

I wish for a magic wand, a new vocabulary to vivify my writing.

My treasure map helps with my plotting, but what can I do about the words that feel pale, flat, listless and lazy, taking up the space with a sense of "blah"?

Prayer is my answer for now.
