Words are like doughnuts; there are too many good ones to pick only one.

Perfect word for you!

I love the word YES as a touchstone. It might be my favorite. Did you get my email last night about the class stuff you asked me about?

I love the word "shard" because of its sound, and because it seems to combine "shattered" and "hard".

And I love the word "mercy" for what it means.

Ooh, that's a good one. It sounds like what it is.

I mentioned to David Lubar this morning that I love the word "scrod." I love many, many words, depending on the day and time, weather conditions, emotional barometer, etc.

Okay, that word just makes me giggle. :)

I know! Scrod is a great word!

I love many words and my favourite changes constantly.

I tend to like odd sounding words and it's become a game to include an unusual one in each book. Ones I've used in the last three have been ululating, insouciance and sussuration.

Other words I like are: home, bezoar, chancre, and amity.

I like odd sounding words too. I need to go look some of yours up now. :)

scheize! is one of my favorites. I used to think it meant sh*t in German, but now I know it's a preposition that prefaces something unfortunate. It's so fun to say!

I also love the word "giggle." : )

I love the word giggle!

it's my favorite because it is full of opportunity and possibility!

then again....

"No" is a good word because I am sometimes motivated more when their is a No. And NO also closes the door on having to do things I don't want to do....
January 20th, 2010 04:12 am (UTC)
I like YES a lot!!!
January 20th, 2010 03:32 am (UTC)
January 20th, 2010 04:14 am (UTC)
Great choice! Your feet touching the ground yet?
January 20th, 2010 02:31 pm (UTC)
Kerfuffle. It's funny to me no matter how many times I hear it :)

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
