It’s a well-known fact that if you want to write well you must read a lot and often. Reading improves your own writing in style, form, and vocabulary. I read a lot of great books, magazines, and try to mix up the genres too. I love it when I find a word I don’t quite know the meaning because it’s kind of humbling. Also, I want to have a kick-ass and diverse vocabulary.
This morning I posted a photo of a word on Instagram. It’s a word that I read in Women in Clothes, a word that I think is worth sharing. My bestie’s brother commented on the photo and suggested I post a word of the day every Friday. I liked the idea, so welcome to the first WORD OF THE WEEK segment!
