Hello World Out There World!

So, right now my count for Inkitt is at 70 downloads remaining – since I promised to keep you up-to-date about the situation.

Another fun thing I want to share with you is the fact I’m getting to work more on my P6 official website. If you are interested in learning more about the world of Prophecy Six and reading about the history of the world this is the place you should check out. I’ll link to the latest update HERE!

Anyways, that is all I have to say for now. I will probably have more to share with you once I get all the beta reading back. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, remember to stay safe, be creative and until next time – toodles! ūüôā

OLD WORD FRIDAY: Ossifragant

Hello World Out There World!

This weeks OWF is ossifragant, which is a adjective founded around 1656.

The word ossifragant means, ‘bone-breaking’.

How you pronounce the word is:

O – SIF -RAG -ANT

Examples of using ossifragant in a sentence:

She heard the ossifragant noise of her hand when the shelf felt on top of her.

Or…

He was known for his ossifragant blow.

Should this word come back?

Nope. I think this word should stay dead as the word¬†ossifragant doesn’t have the same gut wrenching feeling as bone-breaking. Unless you have a character that uses big words that no one is meant to comprehend, then don’t use this word. It is hard to set in a sentence without it sounding strange and it isn’t a word that is easy to read. If you are saying¬†ossifragant in regular, everyday conversation no one is going to get what you’re saying and you’ll probably end up having to explain it – losing the whole feeling for what you are trying to say. I’m not going to lie, I find this word sounds pretty but bone-breaking isn’t supposed to sound pretty or poetic… so the word in my opinion doesn’t work with what it means. At the end of the day this word died for a reason and should stay buried.
