Finding the Right Word

I know there are some writers on this site. Or should I say scribblers lurking? I am Dime and I am not very bright. You might say lacking in luminescence. I digress or in other words I am off track again. Well I am trying to find the right word. But I might be just searching for it. How does one look for the right lingo? You know, pick the proper vocabulary. Or sling the slang at the target audience. Do I want a tetragrammaton or something polysyllabic? Do I go for the Germanic word or the Latin one? Is it best to copy or plagiarize? Do I quote or cite? I am asking for help. Or is it requiring for aid? It’s not that I am ignorant for I don’t know what that word means. If you would be so kind and suggest helpful ways. In other words those truly challenged in cruelty and impatience kick in some light bulbs. If you have an Edison, type.

    Write as you speak, don’t try to impress, just get your thoughts out in the simplest way.

    Triangulate.

    Think what James Carville would tell Bill Clinton to say?
