So try pairing strange things together.
If you are organised then make a list of nouns...bed, house, dog, car, door, football, teapot etc then make a list of adjectives and adverbs, slowly, reddish, quick, probably, easy, gooey, sticky etc.
Now put the pairing together randomly. A sticky house, an easy teacup, a gooey football.
These make interesting reading, but the point is that they sound unusual.
'The sticky house refused to budge from his memory'
See how you can play with the couplings. They might spark a story, give the words a twist and improve the reading experience.
Try to think of collective nouns.
A murder of crows. How about a murder of cutlery.
A gaggle of hen pecked husbands.
You get the idea.
Now think of things that defy the collective noun.
sandwiches? A queue of sandwiches.
Made up words work well if in the right context.
If it was good enough for Will Shakespeare then we can do it too.
Shmoodling her way into his affections, she asked for a cigarette light.
He flandled about in the alleyway until well past the hour.
making your own words sometimes just suits the occasion.
Give it a try.
"Blatter," the child yelled as his mother took a strong hold of his hand.
