There are so many ways to say that a character went some where. In fact, there are over a hundred. Yet we often get stuck on one or two such words, using them over and over again. A while back I found a work sheet that helps with this. It is called "162 ways to say went", and I printed out a copy and taped it up next to my computer. Now, when I am looking for that right word, I just have to glance at the sheet to find it.
This sheet is free to download. All you have to do is make an account with the website and click the download button. I hope you find it useful!
