One of the best things about creative writing, in my view, is that it affords us the opportunity to use words that we would never utter in our day-to-day discourse. The obvious benefit of this is the continuing expansion of our vocabulary. In light of this, I have decided to start a regular word of the day feature on my blog that I am calling, Way Of The Wordsmith.
How this feature will work is that I will highlight a word that rarely (if ever) gets used in daily discourse. I will give the dictionary definition(s) of the word, then provide an example of its use taken from a fantasy or science fiction book I have read.
The first post will appear later this afternoon.
