Local Lingo (Writer Worksheet Wednesday)

What are some words specific to your location? Use this writing worksheet to seek them out.

Creative Writer Worksheet – Local Lingo (PDF)

A simple but fun worksheet today. What are some words or phrases that are unique to your part of the world? For example, in my home town of Shrewsbury, if the taxi takes you around a particularly circuitous route, you’d say it went “all around the Wrekin.”

What is the effect of this “local lingo” and how can you use it in your stories?

Take this worksheet out and about with you. Listen to people talking on the bus, ask your elders, read your local paper, dig up some history. Challenge yourself to fill it up!
