Word of the Day


Hi guys:

Just wanted to pop in and say hello and let you know the editing is going along slow, but well.  I do have a couple of posts planned for next week, especially on the 21st and 22nd (don’t want to miss either one).  Until then, I’ve decided to do a word of the day to keep your minds  nimble and quick.  I hope you enjoy these until I can get back into my regular blog posts. You guys are awesome for hanging in there with me.  Thank you so, so much.

Okay.  Here’s the word of the day:

belletristic – bel-li-TRIS-tik \  (adjective)

Definition (from Dictionary.com):

1.  literature regarded as a fine art, especially as having a purely aesthetic function.

2.  light and elegant literature, especially that which is
excessively refined, characterized by aestheticism, and
minorin subject, substance, or scope.

Used in a sentence:  The belletristic belief that one must first learn the value of self-expression before he can express himself, appeals to those who believe they must understand the fluidity of phonetics in order to become a master lyricist.

  1. I have no idea how to use this word, but I just thought of a dragon who is an aficionado of fine literature named Belletris. (It’s not what you know, but how you use it.)
