Word of the Day
Tuesday, March 20, 2007
Overturn (verb) – To capsize; to upset; to turn something over; to overthrow or defeat someone or something (as in, the St. Louis Cardinals overturned the sports pundits’ expectations when the team won the World Series this past year)

Word in a Sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, the lesser goddess Mia overturns Godric Taiman’s decision to throw Amanda Chariss out of his home when she tells him to sit down, shut up, and let the young lady stay sheltered at the Taiman estate.

Your turn! Today’s word is a really easy one so I know you can give me a great sentence with no sweat!

Hmmm. Sounds to me like your mindset about advertising, etc., got a bit of an overturn there over the weekend, didn't it Sandy, girl! Neat idea to get pens as a giveaway and have the url or other little things earmarking your book on them. Great way to keep that up front in the readers' minds.

It was bizarre. I've had people take pens from my booth at events before, but just because they weren't paying attention or whatever, right? So it's no big deal, and I don't care, but it was odd that she looked at this cheapoid pen and was thrilled by it. I instantly wished I had spent the time and money to get my URL put on some pens to have at the booth, which, typically, I view as a "throw-away" kind of item.

Rar!

But there ya go. The throw-away promo item would have been a good thing to have that day. :) The experience overturned my way of thinking. ;)
