Romance Writer's Word of the Day 7/6/07

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

Dilettante.

Dilettante [dil-eh-taunt] is a noun meaning "one who pursues things for amusement, a dabbler in things, a person who pursues things in a superficial way, a lover of art and science."

Here's a sentence:
Although quite serious when it came to the running of his vast estates, in love he was nothing but a dilettante.

Have a great day!
