Word of the Day
Execrable
(adjective) — abominable; abhorrent; very bad; deserving to be detested; wretched (from Middle English, Old French and Latin meaning "to execrate" (denounce))

Word in a Sentence: In the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, the only reason Julette deigns to tolerate the execrable evil sorcerer Jamieson Drake as her partner in crime is because she knows his power will be useful as her horrid plans swing into motion.

Your turn! Put those evil and detestable thinking caps on and give me a wretched ol' sentence with today's vocabulary word. I avoided mentioning any "idiots" in mine, but everything's fair game in yours. Let's see what you can do to help us remember the meaning of this one!

To Joye,
Fabulous! It's good to have you stopping in and I'm glad you let me know you're "here". I'm sorry my comments have been rather jaded the past week or so. I've let too many "writer's life" issues affect me in a bad way, and that shouldn't be the case. So I'm taking my own inspirational advice and getting over it! Woo-hoo!

We'll keep the Word of the Day and Inspirational Quotes on the positive and optimistic side.

Glad to have you at The Dragon.

Sandy L.
