Word of the Day
Exhaustion
(noun) — The fantasy author traveling in Vegas for the huge equipment show suffered from exhaustion. Oh, wait, definition first… the state of being depleted of energy; being so tired and out of steam as to wish to lay down and DIE! (slight exaggeration on that one)

Word in a Sentence: In the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, Chariss suffers from exhaustion after Master Rothahn forces her to fight conjured enemies for hours on end through the wee morning hours and into the following day as part of her training.

Your turn! (Now, Jeni, today's word is for you. Isn't this a kind and gentle word?) Do you have any instances of sleep deprivation, extreme fatigue, insane overwork, etc. that you could share with us in a sentence today?

Compared to some days, when the little guy decides to wake up and howl just as I have decided to put my head to the pillow, the fact I actually got a solid 4 1/2 hours of uninterrupted sleep may just stave of complete and utter exhaustion until perhaps 6 p.m. instead of the feeling my body is about to fold up like a Japanese fan by 11 a.m. Ah, yes. Sleep is good, very, very good.

Nicely done...
I think I'm still suffering from exhaustion just because I can't put myself to bed at a reasonable hour! There's too much to do!
