I don’t usually stay up late enough to watch Conan O’Brien but awhile back I caught a show during which he campaigned to bring back use of the word thrice.
Thrice. Indeed, a fun word.
Yesterday Karen wrote about beautiful words so well that today I thought we could play with words and look at those that are entertaining. I’d like to suggest some other fun words that I think just aren’t used enough.
Because I’d rather negotiate contracts, send out proposals, and encourage writers, I employ a slapdash approach to housekeeping.
While Steve Laube is draconian regarding book proposals, cooperative writers are rewarded with praise and contracts.
Popular agents and editors face a phalanx of proposals upon returning from conferences.
There’s a lot of work twixt writing a proposal and getting a book published.
We are never allowed to be ribald in CBA.
I can do my slapdash housework lickety-split!
Incoherent proposals make me fractious.
Oh, I’m feeling tolerable today. How about you?
Serious words everyone needs to say more often. Seriously:
I love you.
You are beautiful.
I thank God for you every day.
What are some fun words you like?
