Word of the Day
Voracious
(adjective) — ravenous; ready to eat copious amounts of food; insatiable; having a huge appetite for something; ready to consume/take in large amounts of something (from Latin meaning "to devour," from Old English meaning "to guzzle," and from Greek meaning "to devour")

Word in a Sentence: In the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, the fledgling dragon that visits Chariss appears to have a voracious appetite for chicken pies and cheese because he devours them the instant she places them before him.

Your turn! We've gotten back into doing Word of the Day on a regular basis, but newcomers to Today the Dragon Wins may still be unfamiliar with "the drill" here. At this point in the blog posting, you, as the visitor, get to take today's Word of the Day and use it in a sentence you create from your own imagination. Whether you're a reader or a writer, it's a good way to sharpen your vocabulary skills, keep your brain pumpin' and jumpin', and just do something besides passive reading while visiting a blog. So join in the daily interactive portion of Today the Dragon Wins and leave your hit of creativity in the comment field!

The only remote chance the prince had at taming the dragon before slaying the beast was to attempt to satisfy its' voracious appetite with bits of troll meat. Cindi

Her voracious appetite for books was unfortunately paired with a dearth of shelf space and a tiny paycheck!

Cindi, Kim,
Nice! I can relate to both...Troll - the other white meat.
Kim, my shelf space is at a premium right now in the apartment I'm in! Luckily, it's speckled with books I've already bought and not found the time to read so I have these little bits o' fantasies and "other worlds" just waiting for me to get to them. It's a nice thought...

It's good to have you stop by and participate!!! Welcome!!!
