Today’s prompt from ThinkWritten.com involves those wonderful books that we use to reference the meaning and etymology of words. Since many of us do our word-looking-up online, I suppose you could just start typing a random combination of letters into Merriam-Webster.com or something, and it would serve the equivalent function. If you have an actual paper-and-ink dictionary that works too.
Here it is:
Dictionary Definition: Open up a dictionary to a random word. Define what that word means to you.
Now you could go above and beyond simply defining the word. You could incorporate it into a story or a poem, give multiple examples of it, or just write a journal entry reflecting on the word, free-write style. Go wherever the prompt takes you–and don’t forget to share in the comments!
