Creating 10 Magic Words

In Monday's School of Podcasting, I have Eric Nuzum who is the author of Make Noise A Creators Guide to Podcasting and Great Audio Storytelling.


One of the exercises is pretty hard: Here it is:

Describe your idea in no more than ten words, and do so in a way that describes nothing else in the world. The fun part is you CAN'T use any of these words.

Amazing

Astounding

Awesome

Beautiful

Best

Brilliant

Classic

Compelling

Curious

Diverse

Extraordinary

Fabulous

Fantastic

Fascinating

Fresh

Great

Incredible

In-Depth

Lovely

Outstanding

Quality

Remarkable

Riveting

Sensational

Spectacular

Stunning

Superior

Thoughtful

Tremendous

Unbelievable

Unique

World Class

If you find yourself wanting to use one of these words, I have an easy anecdote. Simply answer why. Why is it beautiful? Why is it fascinating? Why is it spectacular? The answer to your “why” question is your distinct descriptor. Use it instead.
