Romance Writer's Word of the Day 7/18/07

Today's Romance Writer's Word of the Day is:

Inamorata.

Inamorata [in-ah-muh-rah-tuh] is a noun meaning "a woman who is loved or is a lover or an intimate."

Here's a sentence:
Seeing her across the room, he immediately wished to add her to his lengthy list of inamoratas.

Have a great night!

Now that is a word I have never heard before. People think it is odd but I get a little shiver when I hear a new great word. It's exciting. ( I know...odd.) :)

Hope you are having a great day,

Sara

I also get all excited over new words! I'm a nut about language (I'm rusty in Spanish now, but was pretty fluent once, studied Chinese in a special program I qualified for as a kid and studied Russian--and more Spanish--in college. Knew a smattering of French and how to insult a man in Arabic, too... Handy but not as useful as I dreamed ;-)

A new word's like finding a new little treasure--makes me feel like I'm one step closer to communicating effectively each time I learn a new one... ;-)

I hope your day's going well, too, Sara--I'll definitely check out authorblogs.

Take care!
