SAID part 4

This is the last of the words to replace SAID in your writing.
Sorry for the long delay in posting this list. It seems I lost my word lists. No clue how, but all my Word List files went poof. So I have slowly, (and I do mean slowly) been rebuilding them.
In the coming weeks watch for my next list of words This one will be the BASIC words for the human body. I’m still working on the other topics. Can’t wait to post them for you.

Have fun writing–DeAnn.
