Prompt Jar, Tales from the Notebook

Word Collection

While I was doing my final reading assignment for last semester I stumbled on a bunch of words that I either didn’t know or found to be obscure and interesting. During this two book reading ordeal I kept my notepad and cell with dictionary.com on my mobile bookmark. So far it has become a great tool to build my vocabulary. I have also become more of a “word collector”, if you will. I acquire words from my ventures in literature and I visit dictionary.com for their word of the day. Check to see if they offer e-mail or text “word of the day” notifications, if you’re interested.

In this notebook of words you can log new words, favorite words with a foreign language twist, obscure words, and more. With space permitting scribble the definition beside it too. You can also use these words in personal poetry and short story challenges.

Feel free to share your word collections and what you’ve done with them with the canvas at: onecanvas_onesoul@yahoo.

Love Write,

  1. It’s good practice for a writer to learn new words. A single word can often trigger a whole train of thought.
