Using Words You Are Unfamiliar With

Every since I became a freelance writer and blogger some time ago, I have attempted to improve my writing to become a professional. I have to admit that I like the idea of using complicated words, but this is where it gets dangerous. In order to help me a little in the endeavor to make my writing clear and uncomplicated, I try to look up every word I am not sure and unfamiliar with to make sure that I completely understand its meaning before actually using it. It is easy to use the word you might not be sure about when, for example, you want to impress others, but deploying a word without understanding it is actually a dangerous practice. Not only will you mislead your readers, but you also risk becoming a laughing stock among those who choose to read your work. The same rule applies to words you think that you know the meaning of. It is better to be safe than sorry and check those words in an online dictionary rather than staying in the dark and confusing your readers.
