[P] is for P..a…l….m

I wish I could give you the full title. I wish the word was mine. However it is not. This word is playing a vital part in a short story that is being written by someone else. It is a made up word. And it is magnificent.

As I can’t really elaborate further on the magnificence of the p..a…l….m, I decided to explore some other equally wonderful made up words. I started a little research on this topic and got very quickly distracted by this website http://wordoid.com/ and got kind of lost there for few hours. Click on it. It is fun. But please come back.

If you clicked on the link, you know it is a website that creates words. So yes, this post will be about my made up words. I have tried to stay true to the A to Z challenge, so I invented (with a little help) 26 words each starting with different letter of the alphabet. Here they are:

 

Androcia – a plant in a shape of a dragon, when mature it coughs fire

Brandard – a person obsessed with no longer existing brands

Certing – a process of being certified (slang)

Dimense – adj. something/someone trying to be intense and failing miserably

Equalid – equality that actually means equality, validated equality

Fourders – worshipers of number four, often walking in a square formation

Gryphallis  – a less known relative of a griffin, a creature of smaller proportions with a head and wings of a sparrow and body of a cat, often a kept as a pet for its beautiful voice

Homewhat – a place close to the home but not exactly home, especially used by teenagers

Irritory – a place in the house where for no apparent reason, one becomes irritated

Jaminery – type of a factory or an engineering plant that is purposely producing faulty goods

Kochange – a change that will result in a disaster

Louised  – adj. being in a company of too many women called Louise

Meeties – short unplanned meetings, usually on the street going about your own business

Nerdatory – adj. mandatory of the highest level, something so mandatory that no one has found an argument against it

Ougal – very ugly bird that no one is able to see twice as the bird is so incredibly ugly that the visual cortex shuts down immediately upon spotting the ougal. This condition is called Visual Shock Syndrome and is very often irreversible.

Princide – act of suicide committed by a prince, often confused with pringlecide which means committing suicide by eating too many crisps.

Quandard – unit of measurement measuring the standards of quality, it has not been agreed yet on the exact size, volume or length of this unit

Readway – type of a road where you are allowed to read a book while driving

Sotone – type of a beach stone shaped in a perfect sphere considered to have healing properties

Taxatile – adj. being able to tax anything and anyone under any circumstance

Uzzer – type of a loser so ill-equipped to life on Earth he spends most of his time sleeping

Voidier – a creature thriving in an environment often described as void

Wrapiction – an addiction to wrapping, seasonal disorder most evident in December

Xinsula – peninsula in a shape of x, not present on planet Earth

[M] is for Mathematics

{[(Orange + Violet) x (Mercedonus + Magpies for a wedding)] – Ladies dancing} x (Mercedonus – Ladies dancing) = Gates of Valhalla

[(Ladies dancing x Dowgate) – Ladies dancing] x Calling birds = Gates of Valhalla

(Vibilia – Ladies dancing) x Calling birds = Gates of Valhalla

CXXXV x Calling birds = Gates of Valhalla

Gates of Valhalla = Gates of Valhalla

{[(2+7) x (13+3)] – 9} x (13-9) = 540

2 | Orange = second colour of the visible spectrum

3 | Three Magpies for a wedding

4 | Four calling birds (Twelve days of Christmas)

7 | Violet = seventh colour of the visible spectrum

9 | Nine Ladies dancing (Twelve days of Christmas)

13 | 13th Roman month = Mercedonus

16 | Dowgate, Alphabetically the 16th Ward of The City of London

Numbers are fun.

M in the A to Z challenge.

[K] is for K.O.

K is an underused letter in English. Crazy cat ate cream and custard. How many Ks have you heard? Four. But all you see is C. It is not fair. K has defeated me. Or it also may be the amount of alcohol I have allowed to enter my mouth today. It was my mom’s 60th birthday yesterday. Today it was the family party. Serious family stuff was on the agenda. Serious talks, serious tears. Ending in serious lack of coordination between my brain and my fingertips. I am K.O.

K in the A to Z challenge.

Absurd Behaviour Creates Determined Environment.

Founders of Global History, as Identified by J. K. Liberty, Modernized Nature.

Occasional Progress Quietly Reconstructed Science.

Transformation of the Universe is Vital.

Warmongering X-ray Yearned for Zen.

[B] is for Being Bonkers

There are people (special breed known as writers) who have reached a stage of randomness that presents itself in a form of a genius. These people make random appear orderly, in their hands nonsense follows logical paths and unrelated words form solid thoughts. Their sight is not clouded by the misconceptions and prejudices of our culture and society, they create their own community. No matter how fantastical, silly or stretched outside the borders of reality their worlds are, they feel real. And we are lucky they keep the doors open for us. I am their happy visitor and I seek permanent residency.

I dream for my weirdness to be elevated to randomness. I dream of mastering the art of the quill. I dream to see words as a flow and not crushing waves. I dream. I try. I fail. I try again. And I share – not brilliancy or wisdom – only humble efforts of the servant of the Language. I love playing with words. They sometimes like to play with me. Sometimes I am the cool kid in the playground. The next day the loser.

B-day begins

Busy brain

Braving blues

Beliefs bloom

Birthing bonkers

I think I ought to play more.

Wow – I haven’t been here for a long time again! I need to do something about this…the A to Z challenge is coming up and all I do is work, work, work. That is not a healthy lifestyle.

I promise I will be good whole of April 🙂

I would say I have been neglecting my lovely blog long enough…although it was for a good reason, but such is life. We can’t let anyone defeat us. And by ‘we’ (psycho alert!), I mean myself. 

It is strange that just putting down these few words makes me feel better. {[Better doesn’t exactly express my state of being but I can’t think of a better (aargh!) word no, scratch that – suitable word]. (And yes, I think it is totally appropriate to apply brakes from mathematics to writing. Brackets are sexy.)} 

So I need to get myself organized [the US loving auto-correct keeps changing it to organised (and it looks too soft without the z)]. Me thinks a new list is in order – new list of existing writing challenges. A to Z challenge anyone? That is the main one for the time being but there is also the new Fiction in 50 and all the beautiful Daily prompts I haven’t checked in (cliched phrase  alert!) what feels like ages. I have to look up the rest (too tired to do it now).

Also, it is the time of the lent. Or so I was told. My colleagues and friends are giving up things: alcohol, chocolate, cigarettes, using lifts etc. I gave up my cat. Not because it’s lent. Because she had cancer. Aggressive one. I miss her. She was the gentlest animal I have had the pleasure to meet….I guess I should have put ‘morbid alert’ in brackets before  writing this. 

Anyways, random state of mind = random post. Be well.

3 Wishes

Today is your lucky day. You get three wishes, granted to you by The Daily Post. What are your three wishes and why?

1. I wish I only had to sleep for an hour each day so I can spend the extra time writing (also I wouldn’t have to worry about giving up the day job whose main role is to pay the rent)

2. I wish for the most beautiful and inspiring dreams during that sleeping hour so I can write beautiful stories

3. I wish for the peace-happiness-health-earth-kindness-love-tolerance-understanding-knowledge-future (and yes, that counts as one because it’s hyphenated)

Daily Prompt: Lucky Star
