Dual post today because it's Are you writing now? time. First, let's enjoy today's word - which being a writer, you can see why I couldn't pass it up.
1a: make up, compose <indite a poem>
1b: to give literary or formal expression to
1c : to put down in writing <indite a message>
2: obsolete : dictate
[Middle English enditen, from Anglo-French enditer to write, compose, from Vulgar Latin *indictare, frequentative of Latin indicere to make known formally, proclaim, from in- + dicere to say]
Lauren crumpled the paper and chucked it at the trash bin. It bounced off the rim and rolled under the couch. She huffed, blowing a lock of auburn hair out of her eyes.
Why couldn’t she indite a simple college essay?
She was a writer after all, with her first book published by an independent press three years ago, their youngest author, and several since. Words had always flowed out of her like a river. Closing her eyes, she posed the pen over the paper. All she had to do was listen to her muse.
Are You Writing Now?
My May goals were a success thanks to a little help from #writemotivation. Really, a little motivation can go a long way. I signed up for June's #writemotivation and have already managed to forget what I set as my goals.
You'd think by now I'd be tired of editing. I am at times, but I gotta do it. Oh, another thing I'd like to do this month is reveal the blurb for Out of Secrets and start figuring out what I want the cover to look like. That will provide some excitement.
Now it's your turn. Sign up and share your goals for June. Don't forget to cheer others on. It will motivate others and yourself.
