Vocabulary and Writing

I was over at Rachelle Gardner, Literary Agent’s blog today and read her “Try Not To Sound Like A Writer!” post that linked the cartoon to the right, courtesy of Marty Coleman at The Napkin Dad.

I wanted to repost it here because it’s 1) great advice for writers, and 2) I just learned what the word sesquipedalian means thanks to an online vocabulary game. Not only is it fun, but it has already proven useful!

and in case you’re curious–


1. (of a word) Polysyllabic; long: “sesquipedalian surnames”.
2. Characterized by long words; long-winded.
