Word of the Day
Tuesday, February 20, 2007
Deliquesce (intransitive verb) – To melt away, to disappear as if by melting (from Latin)

Word in a Sentence: (get ready for it – this one’s hyper-romantic) In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, Nigel wonders if his heart deliquesces within him the first time he sees Chariss bound into his family’s dining room all smiles and excitement from her encounter in the training arena.

Your turn! Do you have something equally obnoxious you can write with our word of the day? Maybe something a little Wizard of Oz for me?

“Some days, you just want the dragon to win.”

I wish there were a way I could get certain cells in my body to deliquesce but unfortunately, fat only seems to do that in a hot frying pan. Go figure!

That's funny, Jeni...I'd write more but I'll be late for work! Until they install the "Deliquesce" phaser in my car, I still have to deal with the traffic in front of me each morning...
