Writing makes me happy because words are my tools. They can be mixed and matched or strung together in new ways. Likewise, I love to read because words become a story that draws me into the lives of others. The way the author uses words is an art.
This is a list of some of my favorite words. These are words I like because of the way they sound. Some conjure up pleasant thoughts, others have a more disagreeable meaning, but they all have a beauty when spoken. Read these words aloud and see if you agree.
I also delight in learning new words. I keep a notebook for unfamiliar words I come across. By recording the word and its meaning I can better remember the word.
I know I can't be the only one with a word collection. What are some of your favorites?
