They Were the Best of Words, The Worst of Words...

Originally posted on 9/24/08

For writers, words are our life. We rely on them to convey emotions, share information, inspire and connect with our readers. There are words in our language that seem to roll off the tongue or make our mouth happy. Then there are words, that for some reason make us cringe, not because of the meaning, but because they just don't feel right in our mouth.

I thought it would be fun to start making a list of the words people like and don't like.

Here are some of my favorites:
spatula
hullabaloo
effervescent
serendipity

Here are my least favorites:
moist
cockeyed
cavort

Add to my list by leaving your favorite and least favorite in the comment box.

Happy writing!
