Celebrate! Praise! Applaud! It’s Thesaurus Day!

Happy Thesaurus Day! The thesaurus that’s energized, animated, and invigorated the writing of every author who’s ever needed “another word for…” was created by Peter Roget, a doctor, teacher, and lexicographer who was born on January 18, 1779. Roget began compiling his collection of related words in 1805—and his thesaurus has never been out of print!

At Writer’s Relief, we love words! So we decided to celebrate Thesaurus Day and Roget’s birthday with some of our preferred synonyms for our favorite writing-related words: Happy, Create, Goal, Motivate, and Savvy.
