Word of the Day – Diminution – ‘Slipping Away’

Good evening/morning! Today's word of the day is diminution, the act, process, or an instance of becoming gradually less (as in size or importance).

Word of the Day – Fester – ‘For Your Consideration’

So today's word of the day is fester, to undergo or exist in a state of progressive deterioration or putrefy/ rot.

Shadow of May – Day Twenty-Four – ‘Cold Lemonade’

Lately I've been feeling out of it with my writing. It happens from time to time. I just haven't been enjoying the tone that I've developed over the last few weeks, maybe it's because I haven't written this regularly in a long time and it's spreading me thin. I like to think I get better… Continue reading Shadow of May – Day Twenty-Four – ‘Cold Lemonade’
