Word of the Day: “Wordstipation”

Wordstipation: (n.) A condition suffered by writers when what they want to write is all there in the writer’s head, but the words just won’t come out onto the page.

As far as I know, I am the first person ever to have used this word, but I won’t be so arrogant as to claim ownership of it exclusively. It’s a word, and it should be used.

When not busy writing, Meg Leigh spends her time tending to the most pampered flock of chickens on Australia’s east coast. She would really like to have dragons, but has settled for chickens because they come pretty close. If you need proof of this, try offering a flock of chickens raw meat! (Meg would like to advise she accepts no liability for loss of fingers!) Meg also enjoys reading, keeping fit with her bunch of madcap mates at the local park, and spending time with her adult offspring whenever their schedules allow.
