Word of the Day

Languish (intransitive verb) — editorial note: I LOVE this word, maybe because I'm a huge fan of Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde and that's about all Troilus does for half of the story – languish – but I love this word…fabulous…okay – so back to Word of the Day
Languish (intransitive verb) — to lose strength or vigor from suffering in a state of apathy or longing; to pine; to become wistful

Word in a Sentence: In the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, when Nigel must leave for Bellan, Chariss teases him that she'll languish while he's gone. When he returns to his home to discover she's away on her own adventure, he's the one languishing! Bwuahahahaha!

Your turn! Use the Word of the Day in a sentence of your fabulous creation. Do you have any great sentences of lovelorn melodrama to share with us today?

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