Thanks for stopping by! Words to Use was created in 2008 by Amy Morse, and it continues to grow each year with new subjects and expanded lists. 

Words to Use started out as a collection of lists in a spreadsheet that Amy was keeping for her personal writing pursuits. She began passing the lists around to copywriter friends and eventually they asked to be able to access the lists online. Though the site was designed with copywriters in mind, it has become a resource for fiction writers, teachers , people writing greeting cards - anyone who writes!
