“Heteroscedasticity” is this week’s Weekly Word – Can you think of different way to use the word?

This weeks word comes directly from a past Thursday Thronger - Sadie S Forsyth - who used it on Twitter. I spotted her heart wrenching tweet about never having to use it (together with Multicollinearity) ever again and asked if I…

“Juxtaposition” is this week’s Weekly Word – Can you think of different way to use the word?

I must admit that I was very tempted by the word 'neurocalyptic' which I spotted on Russell Gayer's Friday Fictioneers contribution this week (http://russellgayer.blogspot.co.uk/) but as he admitted to creating the word himself I thought it probably shouldn't count. However,…

“Iconoclastic” is this weeks Weekly Word – Can you think of different way to use the word?

I spent Satudary at a the Quest Festival in Devon with my friend Anne Orchard. Specifically we went to hear Tim Freke speak. Tim is the author of several books, including two of my favourites 'The Jesus Mysteries' and 'How…

“Synchronicity” is this weeks Weekly Word – Can you think of different way to use the word?

Firstly, huge apologies for not sticking to my schedule last week and missing out a weekly word post; events, as they say, overtook and I couldn't post. It won't happen again, promise 🙂 I'm also sticking with the letter 'S'…

This week the Weekly Word is Synergistic. I have no idea why I chose this word as I was going to use something else until the moment I started typing out the title of the post and somehow it popped…

This week the Weekly Word is Epicurean, I picked it because I was reminded of it when picking out relishes and pickles in the supermarket yesterday and yet it's a word we rarely see. As usual, I'd like to challenge…

“COMPASSION” is The Weekly Word – how would you use this word?

I've just commented on a post from The Forgotten Wife about not always being special (http://theforgottenwife.com/2012/06/09/thats-right-youre-not-as-special-as-you-were-led-to-believe/) and my comment was to do with responsibility. While I was doing that I was struggling to find a word I really wanted to…

“TUMBLING” is The Weekly Word – how would you use this word?

I'm fascinated by the way that words sound; when you really think about the way they roll around the tongue and the head they can seem so 'right' for their meaning or so 'wrong'. I also wonder where they came…

“SPICULE” is The Weekly Word – how would you use this word?

Welcome to this weeks Weekly Word, which is 'SPICULE' and it comes courtesy of JK Bradley's Friday Fictionners piece FLASH FICTION FRIDAY, almost. When I read his post last week I found the sentence "reticent spicule of urban sprawl" to be…
