of the moment and how do you incorporate it into your writing??

Name some other interesting or beguiling words. At the moment, I'm partial to Dalliance and Snippet. I also like abed.

List your favorites......

"Troculated."

I think Willy Wonka used it in the Great Glass Elevator. I have no idea what it means and its not in my dictionary, but we use it daily, as in, "Oh no, the baby is troculating the cat!" "Ack, that driver pulled out right in front of me and I nearly got troculated."

onomatopoeia

Miranda, I used my own shortened version: discombobbed.

And we like to stick "ubiqui-" onto things. For instance, Ubiquibucks is Starbucks, Ubiquichicks is the Dixie Chicks, etc.
