Have a question


Are there other ways to say time goes by quickly? I have no intention to overuse the sentence. 


Thanks in advance!

Time could hurry, race, accelerate, dash, flash, be nimble or quick, streak, double-time, be hypersonic, be lickety-split, on the double


life is fleeting
in a flash
fast as a wink
in the blink of an eye
time flies when you're having fun
the clock sped up
before she knew it
fast as an arrow
time will pass you by


I wasted time, and now time doth waste me.
     - William Shakespeare
You may delay, but time will not.
     - Benjamin Franklin

These are just a few things off the top of my head... I could probably come up with a thousand+ in a pinch and a little research.  Be creative--you need your writing to be consistent and fit your personality.  Challenge yourself to come up with more.
