Oh, what a fun question I have today! I’ve grabbed my little Questions and Answers book, opened it to today’s date, and here’s what I see:
What’s your favorite word — right now?
I’m glad that “right now” is added on, because my favorite words do change from time to time. But, I think I’ll have to revise this a bit and make “word” plural. It would be impossible for me to single out one word to call my favorite.
If I had to choose only one — right now — it would be ethereal. I love the soft sound of the word. I love the beautiful, gentle images it conjures up in my mind. It’s a whisper of a word. It makes me dream.
Now, in no particular order, a few of my other favorite words would be:
Of course, if you were to ask my editor, she’d tell you my favorite word must surely be “atop”. She made certain to point out how often I’d used it in my last romance novel. Can’t somebody just be on top of the bed once in a while instead of “atop” it? Yes, Julie. You’re right.
Yes, I changed a few of those “atops”.
Words can be lots of fun. Words can be powerful. Words can make us feel, make us see, make us believe.
What’s YOUR favorite word — right now?
Thank you for dropping by today! I hope you’ll leave a comment and share one — or more — of your favorite words.
