Everyone is different, but I find it useful to use short lines when composing the content of a document. Lines typically contain a single concept, and can be easily reordered while trying to establish the best way to say things. Your choice between different words would fit this.

Another approach is to tag choices with macros.

E.g.   \newcommand{\tryfirstoftwo}[2]{#1}

The girl with \tryfirstoftwo{golden}{flaxen} hair.

... and similarly with more choices.
Switching between choices means changing the macro, rather than editing the words.
This is easily done with Copy/Paste.

When you are satisfied that you have made all the correct choices, you may want to remove all the excess baggage.  A smart editor, with regular expression matching, should make this a pretty simple task.
