Even More Nouns

Hello, writers,
 
Excellent job using precise and plural nouns! I am attaching a few links (below) to websites that will help you review nouns and learn more about them (pay special attention to the lessons on possessive nouns). Learning to identify and use nouns (and all other parts of speech) are important skills for every writer because the more we know about words, the more cool and creative things we can do with them. Remember that one of your revision goals should be to replace general, boring nouns with precise, interesting ones.
 
Here's an assignment that will help you practice writing precise nouns:
 
Imagine that a wealthy uncle (that you didn't know you had) wants to spend a total of five thousand dollars on ten amazing gifts for your birthday. Since he lives in a remote castle in Europe, he has asked you to send him a list of the items you want, so he can buy them online and have them mailed to you. Write your uncle an email listing the ten amazing gifts you would like for your birthday. Do the math, be precise, and have fun!
