Romance Writer's Word of the Day 11/29/07


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

...raiment.



Raiment [ray-mehnt] is a noun meaning, "clothing; outfits; garments."

Here's a sentence:
The simple lines and dull colors of her raiment diametrically opposed her brilliant and complex personality.

Have a great day!

Hello, lovely blogg, so much to read , enjoyed it very much,I am from Scotland so will look forward to your romance novel being published in the future, you may be interested in a website herre in the uk, it has lots of writers and columnists who blogg till their hearts content, I think you would fit in very nicley, the web site is purplecoo.co.uk it was set up after a fall out with the magazine ountry Living I believe you have a similar mag in the states, any way this is formed from a bunch of disgruntled lovely ladies who had been writing bloggs for the magazine in order to gain a column in isuch , but to no avail it had all been a fix, so one lady decided to set up a web site of her own , it is not all country twee bu t real country women leading country lifes and businesses in the uk and abroad, so,e are from europe and also the usa, hope you have alook at it, and wish you all the best for the future with your novel, from cold Scotland x
