For Day 3 of Write Yourself Alive, we were to invent a new word and define it. Having studied Latin, Ancient Greek, and Old Norse in college, and also having been somewhat of a Tolkien nerd at one point or another in my life, I’ve done my fair share of inventing words and using them regularly in conversation.
So I decided to write about a secret word that no one knows instead.
Day 2 of Tyler Knott Gregson and Andréa Balt’s Write Yourself Alive was another success for me. Though I felt like I was short on time, I was able to sit down, put pen to paper, and let my words flow free.
After completing The Crossing for NaNoWrimo, I fell into a bit of a writer’s slump. Luckily my fiancé purchased Tyler Knott Gregson and Andréa Balt’s new writing course, Write Yourself Alive, for me as an anniversary gift. Here’s how my first day went.
