    1. Wouldn't it be great as a writer to easily come up with distinct "voices" for our characters! Thanks, Brandi.

  2. Hmm, that's a talent I know I will never have. I'm always in awe of people who can do lots of voices for cartoons and things.

  3. I've never heard of that word! It's a great word. Where do you find these? Do you have some special "historical" dictionary? :-)

    1. Elizabeth - There are a number of online word lists for strange and unusual words; sometimes I find a word from reading a novel, though rarely. Take care ~

    1. I know what you mean, Debbie. I love learning new words, but actually using them is sometimes silly!

    1. I agree, Amanda. I'm always amazed when I learn an actor, whom I thought to be American, turns out to be British...and vice versa.
