Word of the Day
Disconcert
(intransitive verb) — to perturb; to ruffle; to upset

Word in a Sentence: In the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, Chariss finds it disconcerting that Lord Drake's desire for her is no longer merely to kill her when he catches her.

Your turn! Is there anything disconcerting to put in a sentence at this time of year? Throw it in the comment field. (For instance, I find it disconcerting that I found something inspirational that I could use by freaking Nietzsche for today's Quote of the Day. How bizarre is that!?)

"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."

Hi Sandy and Aloha from Author Island. Ah, big word for the day!! It's a little disconcerting that I have so much to read, so much to do, so many places to go and not enough time to do it all!!!

It's also a little disconcerting that the Dragon doesn't win more often!!

It's also a little disconcerting that you can do Nietschke on a Monday!!!!

I think yours is the only blog I've ever visited twice!! I do enjoy it. Glad you keep coming to Author Island and reminding me!

I'm wishing you all the best of the Holiday season and New Year. Hope you and those you care for have a fun and safe Holiday.

Hola Sandy, I am from Puerto Rico and Author Island sent me an invitation to your blog.I find it disconcerting that I can't find a Christmas gift for my friend.

Hi Sandy,

I was disconcerted to realize that there were so many new contests at AuthorIsland and so little time to enter all of them. Here's wishing you success on your new book and happy holidays....
