New Words Contest
If you are anything like me, you love words. Dictionaries, thesauruses and word games are some of your treasured friends (BTW, we discovered a tremendous new word game this weekend called Syl-la-bles Easy to learn and truckloads of fun).
The dictionary I most often refer to is somewhat “old.” I won’t say how old, because that would spoil our contest. Below you will find several words that the publisher included in the “new words” section of this dictionary. Look at the list, then guess what year it was published, leaving a comment in this post. The two who guess the year or come the closest win a prize, one of two cds I have left from the Write to Publish conference: Jane Rubietta and Mary DeMuth. If more than two guess the exact year, I will give another prize from a former conference.
Ready? Here are the “new” words:
You have until Thursday at 4:30 p.m to guess. I will post the winners Friday morning. Please include your email address if I don’t already have it. Thanks for playing and blessings on your week as you write for your Audience of ONE,
