I'm a word lover. Not in a freaky "do me with the letter A" kinda way. It's more that I like and admire people with broad vocabularies, who can turn a phrase and use words creatively. Most of you definitely fall into that category, or I wouldn't be reading your blogs.
Because I believe that you have the requisite mad skillz, I would like to issue a challenge to you. I want you to wow me with your vast vocabularies, your boundless abilities with grammar, your sizzling and skillful syntax (OK, forget grammar. Grammar is for weenies. Syntax is the shiz.).
Here's how it's gonna work:
Every couple of days, I am going to throw out a word. It may be a mundane word, it may be an obscure word, if I'm feeling bitchy, it might be in a language other than English. Whatever, it's my challenge, I do what I want. You will need to take that word and (in the words of the amazing and fabulous Tim Gunn), "Make it work" in a sentence. Simply leave your brilliance in the comments section of the post.
I am not going to respond in comments to any your sentences until the end of the two weeks of words. At that point, I am going to write a post that knits together a story based on my favorite sentences from each word posting (with proper credit due, of course).
The net result is that we are going to write something together. Experiment! So exciting!
So, are you up for it? Do you have the lexical greatness that this challenge demands? I think you do. The first word will be posted this weekend. Show me that my utter faith in your greatness is not unfounded. I am prepared to be dazzled.
